BHERP is enjoying a positive and successful profile at this writing, and I am pleased to share the progress that the Program has made with all of our readers.
While there are many players and stakeholders in BHERP, it is necessary to recognize the professional approach the program has benefited from by The Peregrine Fund, TPF. Those of us in Belize monitoring the released Harpy Eagles, carrying out Environmental Education on behalf of these raptors, and providing basic resources, are following the lead from TPF, and it can rightfully be assumed that their 30 years of experience to conserve wild populations of birds of prey, is now benefiting Belize through BHERP. The Peregrine Falcon and the Mauritius Kestrel are two species of birds of prey which have been saved from extinction by captive breeding and re-introduction efforts from TPF. Their diligent efforts on behalf of restoring the California Condor back into its former range are recognized throughout the world. We hope that within the upcoming few years, The Harpy Eagle, brought back to the Meso-America Biological Corridor, MBC can be added to their list of success stories.
