What’s Next for Territorial Volunteers?

Giovanni de la Fuente

So what’s next for the Northern Territorial Volunteers? Another expedition, of course! But it likely will not be back to the Sarstoon or to the Gracias a Dios border marker at Belize’s southernmost tip – not because they’re afraid, but because the expeditions are expensive and resources are scarce.

 

Giovanni de la Fuente, Head, Northern Territorial Volunteers

“The NTV would love to make the next trip a trip to the Gracias a Dios area because as you well know in February the twenty-seventh we installed a plaque on that monument and the plaque has been stolen, removed, and we informed the Prime Minister that that plaque needs to be replaced, but it is not an easy feat. First of all nobody supports this group monetarily. The first thing we need to do is raise funds and get another plaque, and these plaques cost over a thousand dollars. So if you find somebody who is ready and willing to donate another plaque immediately that will speed us up on returning to that area. But to return to that area we need several thousand dollars. To start with we need a plaque, we need logistics, boat and different things, and so let us know that the Northern Territorial Volunteers is interested to return and install another plaque on that monument.”
