Turning now to environmental news, since last week Monday, the Belize Audubon Society has been engaging in its Annual Central American Water Bird Census. The Belize Audubon Society worked with a team from the Sarteneja Alliance for Conservation and Development.
Here's more from Kevin Tsao of the Belize Audubon Society:
The census will also include the Crooked Tree, Dangriga, and Hopkins wetlands.
An Annual Count of the Number and Species of Water Birds in Belize
2022 is the year of the census, including a population count for aquatic species of birds that are native to Belize. The exercise began a few weeks ago and is scheduled to conclude on the fifteenth of February. The annual count is being led by the Belize Audubon Society and will cover specific protected areas across the country, including Corozal Bay, Crooked Tree Lagoon and Hopkins watershed.
