NEPA warns that consumption of crocodile meat illegal

The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) is advising persons who capture crocodiles for consumption, to desist from the illegal practice or face prosecution. Monique Curtis, NEPA’s Environmental Officer, has stressed that it is illegal to interfere with, or be in possession of any part of the animal which is an endangered species and protected under the Wildlife Protection Act. Miss Curtis commented on recent press reports that there has been an increase in the consumption of crocodile meat at various social events in Jamaica. The penalty for capturing, harming or having any part of the animal, living or dead, is J$100,000 and a prison term of up to two years. Miss Curtis is urging the public to stay away from crocodiles, noting that they serve a useful purpose by helping to clean Jamaica’s marine system. She is encouraging anyone who has information about these animals being consumed or being kept as pets to call NEPA.
