The Sarteneja Alliance for Conservation and Development would like to announce that a large, breeding herd of Manatees has been sighted between Corozal Town and Cerros. Please could every boat owner/captain be extra vigilant and show caution when travelling on the bay in this area to avoid any further Manatee fatalities in 2020.

Corozal Bay Wildlife Sanctuary (CBWS) is home to the largest breeding populations of Antillean Manatees in Belize. This makes it a very important place for the re-population of the species in Belize, especially for the Northern Belize Coastal Complex (NBCC). The number of Manatees within CBWS is in decline, therefore it is especially important that they are protected during their breeding season so their numbers can begin to rise.
