Belize to celebrate 4th Annual Hicatee Awareness Month

Posted: Thursday, October 1, 2020. 9:30 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The Belize Foundation for Research and Environmental Education (BFREE), Turtle Survival Alliance, and its partners invite the public to join them in the celebration of the 4th Annual Hicatee Awareness Month.

The organizations are inviting Belizeans to put on a cape and transform into Hicatee Heroes.

“Together we have one task – to save the critically endangered Hicatee turtle,” the organizations said.

The Hicatee turtle is the only living species in an ancient family dating back 65 million years.

Once widespread, they now exist as remnant populations in parts of Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize.

The species is undergoing rapid and severe decline due to overhunting for human consumption.

 The Hicatee is now critically endangered and in need of greater protection and innovative conservation actions.  Belize offers the highest chance for its survival.

The new materials for this year’s awareness month include songs, videos, games, and activities that are fun and educational for all ages.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the organizations created virtual activities. The activities will be launched on BFREE Belize Facebook page throughout the month of October.
