Project Description
In a world where rainforests and wildlife species are disappearing daily, and increasing awareness to protect remaining natural resources becomes vital, Belize has the opportunity to nurture its astonishingly diverse ecosystems, which provide habitat for a wealth of interesting flora and fauna species. Among the astonishing diversity found in such a small country, over 550 species of birds make it their home. One factor threatening this ecological blessing is inappropriate agricultural practices. Despite their ability to fly from one place to another, birds are increasingly in jeopardy due to habitat loss and degradation caused by clearing of forestlands for pasture and crops, farming on marginal land, slash and burn, use of chemical herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, and habitat fragmentations. This increase in fragmentation dries out forest edges, changes plant compositions, increases vulnerability to fires and disease and clears the way for invasive plants and animals. Nonetheless, the demand for agricultural crops and farming land is increasing. The goal of this project is to create an awareness on the need to protect Belize s biodiversity, specifically focusing on the protection and conservation of the Yellow-Headed Parrot in the Belize District. The Yellow Headed Parrot (Amazona oratrix) is one of the most hunted and persecuted bird species for damaging crops and the pet trade. This goal will be accomplished by promoting eco-agricultural strategies that support conservation efforts aimed at enhancing the quality of the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, restoring habitat and incorporating an agroforestry system that allows local farmers to optimize the use of their existing farmland. The project will promote the improvement and expansion of cashew production in partnership with the Belize Cashew Growers Cooperative thereby enhancing income generation for improved community livelihood.
