Building capacity for fundraising and communications for conservation in southern Belize

Roberta Kamille Pennell

The ultimate goal is to improve the financial sustainability of leading Belizean conservation organization, Ya’axche Conservation Trust, and in turn secure the long-term conservation of critical areas for biodiversity in the Toledo District, southern Belize. The goal for the CLP internship is to build fundraising and communications capacity within Ya’axche Conservation Trust by supporting the professional development of an exceptionally promising young Belizean with a clear passion for writing, a commitment to conservation and a drive to learn and progress their career in the conservation sector.
