    From the map shown, it appears that their concession does include protected land — why are there ANY concessions on land that is supposedly set aside for preservation, instead of exploitation?

  2. Eye in the Sky says:

    With the oil Belize has we should all be living big like the citizens of Dubai.

    Good roads, great infastructure, money in the bank.

    But it seems that only a few benefit.

    If you don’t know anything about the oil industry you should really keep your damn mouths shut!!! There are more damages done by slash and burning than oil drilling
