Small Belize-based conservation NGO running Belize's Manatee Rehabilitation Centre, operating entirely with volunteer support

Wildtracks was registered as a Belize nonā€profit conservation organization in 1996, and has been working since then in four programme areas:

  • Wildtracks Conservation Programme
  • Wildtracks Research Programme
  • Wildtracks Sustainable Development Programme
  • Wildtracks Outreach Programme

The Manatee Rehabilitation Centre falls under the Wildtracks Conservation Programme, which has as its objective the long term protection of biodiversity of Belize. The Centre is

managed in partnership with the Belize Marine Mammal Stranding Network, and overseen by the National Manatee Working Group.The Manatee Rehabilitation Centre was established in 1999 by Wildtracks to care for orphaned or injured manatees found in Belizean waters, and prepare them for release back into the wild.

Volunteers assist in all areas of the Rehab Programme, and also work with the local community conservation group, the Sarteneja Alliance for Conservation and Development (SACD) and traditional fishermen in management of Corozal Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, a national protected area established for the protection of manatees. Work with the community includes environmental education and awareness, research and monitoring and surveillance activities, with local partners.
