Conservation Legacy - Training new conservationists in Belize

Nineteen Belizeans have been hired and trained by Birds Without Borders-Aves Sin Fronteras®, which is a research-conservation-education project stretching from Wisconsin to the Central American country of Belize. The project has been run jointly by the Zoological Society of Milwaukee and the Foundation for Wildlife Conservation, Inc. (FWC), but in 2009 the FWC is taking over management of the project.
