Jaguar Education from Belize Zoo

See on - Cayo Scoop! Best of Cayo’s E-Mag.

The Belize Zoo has been having an awareness campaign about jaguars and their protected status.  They went to Caledonia village, where a jaguar was poached recently, and spoke at the local school to the children.  Thanks, TBZ!

"it’s a follow up to the incident that happened in the village several weeks ago and the objective was to turn it into something positive to involve this community that have these jaguars and other wildlife very near their community and interact with them probably on a daily basis and the whole concept is simply education and awareness making them have a sense of pride and respect for these animals that they live in close contact with every single day and for them to understand our value in the conservation of our forest and in all the industries that its connected to."
