Caye Caulker to replant coconuts

Last November when Hurricane Keith hit Belize it not only destroyed many homes on the island of Caye Caulker, but ruined most of cayes’ greenery including many coconut trees.

The seedlings valued at three thousand dollars, were produced through a coconut hybridisation project based at Central Farm.
