A necessary part of conservation work is getting the word out. We’ve made concerted efforts this summer to share BFREE’s conservation initiatives – both by delivering talks at conferences and other forums and by producing short articles. Many of you have seen some of our articles posted on Facebook and BFREE’s Jungle Blog. For those who haven’t – here are the highlights.
The Bladen Review was printed in July representing the first publication of what is planned to become BFREE’s annual magazine; Turtle Survival Alliance included Jacob Marlin’s article on the Hicatee Conservation and Research Center in their magazine, Turtle Survival; and BFREE circulated a press release to update Belizeans and the international conservation community about the discovery of two new Harpy Eagle nests in the protected areas of southern Belize – the press release has been picked up by numerous online and print news venues, including Wingspan (a monthly publication of the Raptor Research Foundation) and Amandala (a newspaper in Belize).
