Protect our Scarlet Macaws!

Dear Editor,

I would like to bring your attention to the immediate need for protection of the Scarlet Macaws in Red Bank Village.  Norwegian Cruise Line is attempting to place an ATV trail through their critical habitat.

This will cause an already very fragile species to die off in Belize. They are a part of our heritage and have a right to be here; these birds are some of Belize’s most famous icons.

Consider that they are literally priceless! Their value to the tourism industry should be allowed to profit for generations to come – instead of allowing a one-time gain for a very few people.
And this is aside from the species’ own intrinsic value. I am asking, as a concerned citizen, to please do whatsoever you can, to protect our magnificent macaws!

Thank you for your consideration,

Stacy Martin
