The Turtle Survival Alliance, BFREE, members of the Hicatee Conservation Network, and Emmy-award winning filmmakers, Richard and Carol Foster, have teamed up to create this film. ‘Hope for Belize’s Hicatee: Central American River Turtle,’ which features a critically endangered turtle species being intensely harvested for its meat.
As a Belizean organization, they are reaching out to everyone throughout the country to help share this film and the conservation message. They’re also inviting you to join in celebration of Hicatee Awareness Month during October.
Their website www.bfreebz.org and facebook page BFREE BELIZE will have information and resources available all month long. There will be many opportunities to learn about conservationists in Belize and ways to join together for a positive impact.
The hicatee is disappearing, but together we can save it!
