People will have to learn to live with the crocs

For about a month now, residents of Belize City’s Belama Area have sounded the alarm that there are crocodiles in their neighbourhoods. There have been sightings of at least one of the large reptiles moving about in the streets, yards, and in the nearby canal. Residents there are concerned that the animals, considered apex predators, will eat their pets or worse. Jonathan Triminio is a research biologist at the Crocodile Research Coalition and he says the reptiles are at the height of their breeding season. 

The CRC does not advocate for the extraction of these animals because it’s not the reptiles that are encroaching on human spaces. Instead, they argue that human beings are imposing on the crocs’ natural habitats. Triminio concedes that with a little more education, people just have to learn to live with them.
