Cabinet endorses Rosewood Moratorium

APAMO which comprises numerous conservation NGOs, on Monday applauded the suspension of harvesting and exportation of rosewood. Letters of support were sent to the Prime Minister and to Minister of Forestry, Lisel Alamilla describing the moratorium as “the first positive and assertive step in mitigating the environmental crisis caused by the unregulated harvesting of rosewood in Toledo, which has threatened the survival of the hardwood species in Belize and potentially increases the negative impacts of climate change on our region.” The list of NGOs that are backing Friday’s moratorium includes the World Wildlife Fund, BTIA, Program for Belize, Friends of Swallow Caye and SATIIM.

    Why such applause. Mr.Vega has already retrieved and sucked the life of those trees the remaining is just left overs.

    can you see. they have done the damage and only pretend to care the richness and value of it all is with VEGA and his party poopers.

    we fight for a cause but after the damage is done.. wake up peeps don’t let them bs you.

    they are after all made of words and more words
