By BBN Staff: Since 2019, Iguana Reef Inn in Caye Caulker has embarked on a mission to feed the marine animals that come near their peir.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the hotel decided to commence feeding them daily.
The routine occurs at about 5:30pm when pelicans arrive on the pier.
Just at the shore, some of Belize’s Southern sting rays come to get their daily prize.
General Manager, Eric Wilder says that marine life is so important to Belize and Belizeans and visitors enjoy getting an opportunity to feed the animals.
The spectacular experience allows everyone to see up close tarpons, sea horses, pelicans, sting rays and sharks.
The Inn has a sign near their pier warning boaters about the sea horse habitats.
The tarpons and nurse sharks are also fed daily.
Wilder says that taking care of our marine wildlife and their natural habitat is key to protecting them and bringing awareness to people about how important these marine creatures are to Belize’s marine biodiversity.
Wilder encourages all Belizeans to engage in marine conservation in order to protect and preserve the marine ecosystems in the country.
