Rio Bravo Update: Illegal Loggers Caught

Rangers from Programme for Belize (PfB), with the help of Belize law enforcement, caught 7 mahogany poachers in the Rio Bravo Conservation Management Area (RBCMA) on two separate days in January.  More than forty 8-foot rolls of mahogany were confiscated and the poachers were arrested and taken to court. Six to eight rangers from PfB conduct regular foot and vehicular patrols (including waterways) to deter illegal logging, while another six rangers man the three permanent gates at the RBCMA.
