SATIIM files injunction to prevent drilling in forest reserve

The Sarstoon Temash Institute of Indigenous Management (SATIIM) will be hosting a press conference on Tuesday, to discuss a claim filed in the Supreme Court of Belize by SATIIM and the buffer communities of the Sarstoon Temash National Park.  Executive Director Gregory Ch’oc is currently visiting the buffer communities of Barranco, Midway, Sunday Wood, Conejo and Crique Sarco to gain support for the action that has been filed.   SATIIM co-manages, with the Belizean Forestry Department, the forty-one thousand eight hundred and ninety-eight acre of Sarstoon Temash National Park. The court action is another blow to the oil industry which has experienced lawsuits for offshore exploration by Oceana Belize and now by SATIIM for terrestrial areas.
