    Dear Breaking Belize News,

    A few weeks ago I sent an email in my concern of the over sensationalizing of crocodiles and other predators by the media; sensationalizing the danger of an animal is not assisting in the co-existence and continues to perpetuate false beliefs and mis-guided information about these creatures. The species we have here ARE NOT man-eaters; the species we have in Belize are shy and timid of humans as long as they are not fed or handled during tours, aka, habituated towards humans. I highly suggest you contact THE experts in the world (www.iucncsg.org) about these creatures as if the biodiversity of Belize is to continue (and which many depend on for natural resources and eco-tourism) we need to learn how to co-exist with all animals and we need the media’s existence. If you have any questions, I am more than happy to provide THE FACTS OF CO-EXISTENCE so that you may empower communities with knowledge to live alongside all animals, keeping communities safe.
