The Wildlife Care Center of Belize
The Wildlife Care Center of Belize was established in 1998 and became a non-profit in 2000. Working in collaboration with the Belize Forest Department, confiscated and rescued black howler monkeys are rehabilitated and released back into the wild and monitored. The success of the program led to a similar project in development for black-handed spider monkeys. The Center's goals are to incorporate conservation, research, animal welfare and education in its objectives of providing a permanent sanctuary for non-releasable monkeys, continuation of rehabilitation and release programs for confiscated monkeys, and public awareness programs aimed at reducing the illegal trade in wildlife species.
