Disease Monitoring of Wildlife Intakes
The Belize Wildlife and Referral Cinic (BWRC) works with all wildlife species (native/non-native) to ensure disease monitoring is occurring and being reported.

Bi-weekly/ weekly microscopy of fecal samples are conducted for all patients, 3 clean fecal samples are required for advancement in rehabilitation. Patients are vaccinated and treated with tick preventative and dewormer.
