Don't Feed the Crocs: it's illegal
The Feeding of Crocodiles south of San Pedro Town is a continuous but illegal practice. For months there have been efforts made by environmentalists and neighbors in the area to discontinue those practices. Several agencies, including the San Pedro Town Council, The Forestry Department and the Police Department jointed their efforts to install a sign, clearly displaying the illegality of feeding the American Crocodile.
Under Chapter 220 of the Laws of Belize Wildlige Protection Act, molesting (feeding) wildlife is punishable by a $1000.00 fine and/or six months in prison.
DO NOT FEED THE CROCS; it disrupts the normal feeding cycle which can lead to the specie's extinction.
Just wanted to post a big thank you to those involved in this continued effort to stop this illegal and dangerous activity. Every trip my kids see this activity and want to stop and watch. Every trip I have to explain how dangerous it is and how it endangers the crocs as well.
