Hi Kate & tech forces behind the addition,

Big thanks for this!

Just a tiny clarification upon checking the new available areas:
The additions seem to include all of Central America as well as all of the
Caribbean including the Galapagos and Falkland Islands but possibly
excluding Trinidad and Tobago.
(Mexico is not part of Central America).

I've attached screenshots of the areas below.

.. not sure of this capture below shows overlapping boundaries that include
but visualize oddly or if they exclude Trinidad and Tobago and the islands
North of the coast of Venezuela (Aruba, etc):

In any case: This is more than what was asked for. Very happy to see this
extension. The HOT Exports Tool coverage is now quite impressive!

Thanks again!
