Belize Audubon Society warns drivers of wildlife crossings

Posted: Thursday, August 18, 2022. 10:34 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Belize Audubon Society (BAS) reminds drivers to drive safely on the Hummingbird Highway and keep our wildlife alive.

On Wednesday, August 17, a Northern tamandua was found dead, reportedly killed by a speeding driver near St. Herman’s Blue Hole National Park.

The Northern tamandua is a medium-sized anteater with small eyes and ears and a long snout. The fur is a pale yellow over most of the body, with a distinctive patch of black fur over the flanks, back, and shoulders.

They are native to southern Mexico, Central America, and parts of South America and they inhabit tropical forests in Belize.

BAS noted that the animals are nocturnal but can be very active during the day.

There are no major threats to the animal, but they do suffer from hunting, wildfires, and roadkill.
