With Illegal Wildlife Trade (IWT) quickly growing as a global issue, more countries have started to become affected including Belize.
In 2013, the Forestry Department confiscated multiple Jaguar hides in San Pedro Town with each having a black market value of over $3000, confirming that IWT is already affecting Belize.
Illegal hunting and fishing has also put many species of marine and terrestrial animals on the endangered list in Belize but there are organizations combating the problem by trying to educate the Belizean populace on the matter.
Organizations like the Wildlife Conservation Society, and Friends for Conservation and Development have teamed up to host a seminar on the Illegal Wildlife Trade in Belize.
The seminar will provide useful information and insights from experts, with examples of how the illegal trade affects other countries around the world.
This seminar will be held at the Coastal Zone Management Authority & Institute Training Room in Belize City at 1:30 p.m. today, June 1st, 2015.
