Conch shells line our island paths

By Slickrock Adventures on December 10, 2012

Conch shells may line our island paths but we don’t contribute to the declining conch population (see our Dec. 3 post about the Queen Conch being considered for the threatened or endangered species list.)


These shells were acquired over the years from eating conch back when they were plentiful and a regular part of the belizean fishery. Now, the only shells we acquire are found during snorkels and are laying empty, abandoned by their previous builders and occupants.
