Don’t miss the chance to help protect the Chiquibul

Posted: Saturday, October 18, 2014. 1:41 pm CST.

October 18, 2014. Larry Waight Reporting: The Chiquibul Protection Telethon for the Friends of Conservation and Development is currently in progress at the Memorial Park in Belize City. The purpose of the telethon is to raise the complement of park rangers to 24. At an estimated cost of $24,000 for salaries, equipment, training and insurance for one of the toughest jobs in Belize, the NGO needs nearly $600,000 for the program.

Why the Chiquibul Telethon:

  • The Chiquibul Forest comprises the Caracol Mayan Site, the Chiquibul National Park and the Chiquibul Forest Reserve
  • About 400,000 acres of rich biodiversity, wildlife, timber and home to the largest cave system in Central America and to the Caracol Archaeological Site
  • It provides water to over 40% of the Belize population
  • It is the largest cachement area of rainfall which is critical to the provision/generation of electricity in the country
  • Friends of Conservation and Development (FCD) is a small group of dedicated committed Belizeans who risk their lives each day in protecting and conserving this vast natural resource
