These are ACES Wildlife Rescue, Belize Bird Rescue, Belize Raptor Centre, Belize Wildlife Referral Clinic, Belize Zoo, Crocodile Research Coalition, Eco-Iguana Corner Foundation, Green Iguana Conservation Project, and Wildtracks. The Forest Department also awarded one of its rehabilitation partners for their outstanding contribution to wildlife conservation and rehabilitation.
