Mother and Child
(Manatee Tears)

The necklace is not for sale and is
used as a "prompter" to stimulate a discussion of  the circumstances of its origin and the plight of the manatee.

The Nature Conservancy is now actively involved in the region and in educating Belizeans and Guatemalans about the
rarity and the potential tourist value of extant manatee specimens.
Your support of tourism within the area will lend valuable credence to this effort.
