The Belize Wildlife and Referral Clinic (BWRC) is a registered non- profit animal welfare organization that operates country-wide in Belize. BWRC provides free medical care to injured, orphaned, neglected or otherwise imperiled wildlife. Medical care is provided at their veterinary clinic in Central Farm, Cayo District, by their staff of veterinarians and technicians. Wildlife patients are treated at BWRC, where they may undergo medical treatment and possibly rehabilitation prior to being returned to the wild.
It’s that time of year again, where animals and men come together and join forces on the track. Yes, you guessed right, I’m talking about the New Years Horse Racing event, held on the 1st of January 2014 at the Castleton Race Track, Burrell Boom Village.
Horses, Jockeys, and audiences; all are eager to know what the outcome of the race will be.Prancing out proudly, along with their riders; they enter the track,Legs yearning to have a feel of the dusty road to victory,neck stretched out, ears up and aware of their spectators.
This year, Belizeans surely demonstrated that anytime is the right time to celebrate. With a little humidity blessing us; but surely the patriotic spirits and the need to celebrate outweighed the weather. Supporters came out, along with their umbrellas to take part in the high spirited and joyous festivities. Participants were sure to carry on with their tasks; bands were playing their instruments as loud as they could possibly go. Dancers dancing to the beat of the drums. Tumblers, which have been absent for a few years, made their presence in this year’s parade. An invasion of heartily clowns made their way through the streets of San Ignacio and Santa Elena handing out candy and smiles, brightening the hearts of both our young and elder Belizeans.
