Saving Crocodiles with the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) and the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES) in Belize

Saving Crocodiles with the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) and the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES) in Belize | Belize in Photos and Videos | Scoop.it
Will Moreno's insight:

As a part of the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) we got the call to go help in securing and ensuring the safety of an 8.5 foot crocodile that found its way into Belize City by way of underground canals and culverts. 

 

Between Evan Sims from the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES), Gordon Kirkwood, Graeme Kirkwood and Will Moreno from the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) they managed to immobilize this magnificent yet powerful creature for the safety of the public and the safety of the crocodile. We are happy to report that the crocodile has been relocated to the Crodile Sanctuary for further evaluation and future release.

That is so nice that they don't just kill the crocodile instead they move it to a new home.  That must be so hard get a crocodile and not having it bite you or somthing.  That Wildlife Emergency Response Team would realy need to know what thare doing.  Knowing me I would have the hardest time to deal with wild animals like that.

Belize is filled with beautiful birds.

As you wake up you hear them chirping outside your window and when you take a walk along the seashore you see them frolicking in the waves.

Took this photo of this Sand Piper playing peek a boo with the waves coming over the sea wall.
