APAMO: Belmopan will halt all de-reservations

It seems that Belmopan’s decision to back off of plans to de-reserve almost three thousand acres of Bacalar Chico National Park was only part of its policy reversal. According to a release from the Association of Protected Areas Management Organizations, at a meeting held today with Minister of Natural Resources Florencio Marin and a number of ministry C.E.O.s, Government also agreed to stop the de-reservation of all protected areas, unless such a move has been put before the National Protected Areas Commission and evaluated with consultations and scientific justification. The Commission’s first meeting will take place on November seventh.
