We have expanded our research into the maya mountains at TREES!

This project is run by using trail cameras set up at different locations in our research locations. This project is funded solely by donations from the public. Our time spent on this project is volunteer time and we are not compensated for our work. You can learn more about our project on our Research Page.

Ed & Debi Willoughby are the founders of the Belize Wild Cats Project. They have teamed up with native Belizean Sipriano Canti, and together they run the project, maintain the cameras, network with other wildlife professionals and push the project in a productive direction.

To develop and maintain mutually beneficial conservation practices throughout Belize that will benefit both the native wildlife as well as the local people.
