OCEANA Concerned About Environmental Clearance Given for Port of Magical Belize

Late this evening, OCEANA Belize issued a release saying that G.O.B.’s dismissal of the cumulative impact of multiple cruise port proposals is short-sighted. The release comes on the heels of an environmental clearance granted to Portico Enterprise Limited for the construction and operation of Port of Magical Belize, a cruise ship port and day resort six kilometres south of the Sibun River. The approval letter was signed and stamped by Chief Environmental Officer, Martin Alegria and sent to Portico proprietor David Gegg last Friday, April ninth. OCEANA Belize says that G.O.B. has not issued any official release despite significant public concern around this project. Vice President Janelle Chanona says that Belizeans must maintain awareness and demand meaningful engagement on development proposals to support informed decision making.
