You can contact us straight away for help and advice, or check here to see if the bird really does need our help 

Contact us (in confidence) with details of the situation and location and we will pass on the report to the Belize Forest Department without involving you or giving your name. The people that have the bird may be given time to comply with permit conditions, or the bird may be confiscated and brought for rehabilitation immediately. Whatever happens you will have helped that bird.

Yes! We will respond to rescue calls for all species of wildlife, and then find the correct organisation to help with that particular species. 

It is illegal to have a captive wild parrot in Belize. If you have a bird that has been in your possession for several years, you may be eligible for a permit.


Belize Bird Rescue now gives online presentations via Zoom.
