I have just learned from a friend on CC that Lionel "Chocolate" Heredia has passed away today. He will live in my memory. I have a video interview we shot last summer that I was just editing a day ago. Rest In Peace Chocolate.

Here is a clip from our documentary:

When we came our first time to caye caulker in 1996, my wife annette and me had a pefect day with chocolate. We went to "his manatees". Only we, chocolate and the manatees. No other boat, no other people. We had plenty of time to talk and exchange opinions.
A wonderful man left this world. we will keep him in our hearts.
Hans and Annette

An amazing man. My heart goes out to his family - to Annie - to everybody who loved him.
His legacy of conservation work is so impressive and important.
CC will not be the same without him.
