Same consultation should be held in Belize City, closest to Swallow Caye, from where most of the boats in their habitat and breeding area, including the Belize River, emanate from. We saw a dead manatee about 5 miles up the Belize River last weekend and probably from a boat propeller. Many of the cruise ship tours use this river and drive hard to get their passengers to and from.
