263 Animals Rescued by the Panama Canal Authority

Wednesday, April 30, 2008


As part of the Panama Canal Authority’s (ACP) efforts to protect wildlife as the Expansion Program moves forward, more than 263 animals have been rescued, examined and relocated to protected areas near the Canal.
During the execution of the first two dry excavation contracts for the Pacific locks access channel, the ACP has surveyed more than 880 acres for endangered wildlife and recovered several species of mammals and reptiles. This week, Canal personnel rescued a female crocodile and released it in where a population of the same species is already established.
The ACP will execute similar actions before, during and after other expansion contracts, following the Environmental Management Plan specified in the approved environmental impact study designed to protect the Canal’s biodiversity.
