By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “A great day for the wildlife of Belize!” said Panthera-Belize of the wildlife underpasses being built for animal crossings on Coastal Road.
Panthera-Belize said on a social media post that Panthera and partners have been advising the government on the construction of wildlife underpasses beneath the Coastal Road.
These crossing points that are being constructed at strategic points on the Coastal Road will allow the movement of wildlife through a critical section of Maya Forest Corridor.
Panthera-Belize said the Corridor would otherwise be bisected by the newly upgraded highway.
Panthera-Belize said they been monitoring the area using camera traps. So far, Panthera’s team and the Foundation for Wildlife Conservation (FWC), have documented 22-25 jaguars using the lands on either side of the Coastal highway. But, not only jaguars inhabit the area. A good number of pumas, tapirs, and other wildlife species live on either side of the highway and the underpasses will help keep their populations alive.
