Belize Audubon Society
The Belize Audubon Society is a non-governmental conservation organisation founded in 1969 to encourage and develop conservation initiatives in Belize. It currently manages nine of the country's protected areas in partnership with the Belizean government. Among the founding members was Albert Staine, at that point Director of Public Prosecutions, who would later become Chief Justice of Belize. The Belize Audubon Society gives out the James A. Waight Award each year. Past recipients include former Chief Justice George Brown.
