The Belize Wildlife and Referral Clinic (BWRC) is a Belizean non-profit organization founded in 2011 with the help of a host of wildlife partners and friends. BWRC’s founder, Dr. Isabelle Paquet-Durand, had for many years provided free medical care to wildlife centers and in the field without a clinic facility and only basic medical equipment. That was before a very special and severely injured monkey named Spartacus provided the impetus to seek funding to establish BWRC. BWRC is now a modern, fully staffed veterinary clinic with x-ray and gas anesthesia; for both wildlife and domestics. As of 2018, BWRC has provided free veterinary care to over 1,500 animals. BWRC continues to grow in scope while remaining focused on its core mission.
Vision: Wildlife Conservation and Sustainable Development through Collaboration.
Mission: To support wildlife conservation; animal health and welfare; and the veterinary profession in Belize through medical services, education, research, and collaboration.
