NTOTA genuinely hearts the work of Belize Wildlife and Referral Clinic. The team in Belize, led by the fearless and hardworking Dr. Isabelle Paquet-Durand, takes care of any and all wildlife that needs care, all for free.  Here at NTOTA we are pleased to supply some much needed equipment to the Belize Wildlife and Referral Clinic.  After some discussion with Dr. Paquet-Durand, we were able to purchase an X-Ray Processor and a Nomad Pro2 Handheld X-Ray System, which are used in the field caring for the varied clientele of the wilds of Belize. Working closely with Dr. Paquet-Durand means that her organization gets what they need most.  When NTOTA makes a contribution to the Belize Wildlife and Rescue Clinic, we want to make sure it counts.

NTOTA is proud to support several of FCD Belize’s initiatives.

NTOTA has donated funds to FCD’s Ranger Program, the Anti-Poaching Unit, and the Scarlet Macaw Conservation Program.  The Ranger program actively monitors the entire Chiquibul Forest and defends the forest and its inhabitants on a day-to-day basis.  The Anti-Poaching Unit works specifically to protect wildlife from being hunted and poached, specifically Scarlet Macaws, jaguars and Tapirs.  The Scarlet Macaw Conservation Program focuses on monitoring the existing Scarlet Macaw population, noting feeding and breeding patterns, recording the number of eggs laid, hatchlings and fledglings each season.  The Scarlet Macaw Conservation Program also works integrally with the Anti-Poaching Unit if chicks are discovered as missing, with full effort going into rescuing and rehabilitating any birds saved. This year the program rescued 7 poached chicks and 2 sick chicks, with 7 successfully reared to maturity with rehabilitation and released  back into the wild.

NTOTA’s heart skips a beat when dolphins are involved, and even though LMMN are not part of our regular group of causes, we wanted to support the efforts of the Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network.  Their organization is a non-profit focused on protecting marine animals (dolphins, seals and whales) in the waters of South Carolina.

NTOTA Camera Trap for Path of the Panther in the FL Everglades

Path of the Panther is a call to action film project to bring awareness to and protect the ever shrinking undeveloped land needed by the Florida panthers to survive.  Florida’s human population is growing by 1000 people per day. The Florida Wildlife Corridor, without protection, will be obliterated by the suburban sprawl that is projected to consume 5 million acres of wildlife habitat by 2070. A donation to Path of the Panther will help the work of scientists with landowners to reveal areas for land protection and wildlife crossings needed to keep the Everglades intact and save the future of wild Florida.  NTOTA is proud to have helped the cause by purchasing a camera trap to collect additional footage and information about the panther population.
