Belize Audubon Society urges public to cease burning

Posted: Sunday, April 26, 2020. 2:21 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The Belize Audubon Society (BAS) issued a statement urging the public to avoid burning.

BAS says that over the last 3 weeks, there has been numerous reports and outcry from the public regarding forest fires and poor air conditions due to smoke from fires.

BAS notes that fires are a threat to life, property, and health.

Consequently, for the past 3 days park rangers at St. Herman’ s Blue Hole National Park along with adjacent property owners have been battling a fire nearing the boundary of the protected area.

The BAS noted that they have seen reports from several other protected areas managers battling fires across the country.

“As resource managers, we consider risks and put measures in place to minimize damage, however, we cannot do it alone. Therefore, we implore you to refrain from lighting fires in your yards or farms. Given the current dry conditions, we are experiencing even a small fire may get out of control and lead to dire consequences. Our team of rangers remains at the forefront at this time diligently protect our assets and natural resources. They need your support to be successful,” the BAS expressed.
