Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Wildlife Rehab Facility Volunteer Position Belize



We are a nonprofit organization authorized by the Belize Forest Department, dedicated to the preservation and safeguarding of Belize's indigenous wildlife and their vital ecosystems. We operate the sole wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center in Northern Belize's cayes, with expertise in handling various wildlife species but with a particular focus on the rehabilitation of birds and reptiles. Throughout the year, our team offers 24/7 emergency assistance for injured, sick, orphaned, or displaced wildlife on Ambergris Caye, and when feasible, on our neighboring island, Caye Caulker. Given the rapid expansion of tourism and unchecked habitat loss, every animal we rescue, rehabilitate, and release could have profound significance for its species both today, and in the future. Our team also addresses instances of human-wildlife conflict, notably involving American Crocodiles, and aids residents in identifying sustainable coexistence methods through scientific research, community outreach, and education.

ACES - Best in Belize!!
"Beyond the fact that Chris and Christina are some of the most genuinely caring, charismatic, and beautiful people in the universe, their devotion to ACES is inimitable. The facility is not massive, but there are enough non-releasable animals and animals currently in rehab there that if you want real experience at an animal rescue, they have work for you. Do not come looking for time to take selfies with cute birds, come if you are serious about learning how to rescue, rehabilitate, and release wildlife and care for and enrich non-releasable wildlife. Couple all the potential knowledge and experience you gain with the fact that it's located on the beach North of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, this place is gold."- Chloe Cook
