Viewers participate in pertinent poll

The recently imposed moratorium on rosewood harvesting and exportation in the south has received mixed responses. While the NGO community supports it, many residents in Stann Creek and Toledo are protesting because they have logs that were already harvested and the moratorium means a financial loss if they are not allowed to sell it. We put the issue to our viewers on Tuesday with the question: Do you support the moratorium on rosewood? Seventy-six percent said yes while twenty-four percent said no. On our blog, one person responded to the question saying “Yes I do but I hope the stop is only to get a handle on the situation and move ahead in an intelligent way.”
