Boat Rally For Rosario Leads Up To Important Public Meeting on Tuesday, May 15th

Last week I wrote about the approved development of the small island just off of Secret Beach on the west side of Ambergris Caye.

Here is a pic of the original proposal (left) and the final one.  With EXTENSIVE docking and over 50 over the water cabanas in HOL CHAN Marine Reserve – on the tiny island of Cayo Rosario.

Yesterday, local guides and concerned citizens met at the island to show unity:  NO OVER THE WATER STRUCTURES AT CAYO ROSARIO.

This all leads up to the public meeting tomorrow.  5:30pm at the Lions Den, May 15th.  For EVERYONE.  Families, guides, children, visitors, residents, lovers of our island.

Here are my photos from yesterday’s rally at Rosario.

Panny just had his beach area – a picnic spot on a lovely beach that he had erected – burned down on the West Side of Ambergris Caye.

Panga visiting the boats.

Independent guides, El Pescador, Seaduced by Belize, Searious Adventures, concerned citizens, Go Fish Belize,  Laminar Fly,  Passion Kite Belize, over 30 boats turned out.

WE headed out about an hour later.  READY for the meeting on Tuesday.  I hope to see you ALL there.

    I will not be back until Friday or I would attend. Hopefully the crowd is huge to show the developer that growth in this case is bad.

    I would think that it is not the developers that need to be convinced, but the GOB. Developers develop…it’s what they do. And while it would be great to get the developers to change their minds, I doubt that will happen. They are in the business of making money – environment be damned!

    It is the GOB that has to step up and say “No! You developers cannot do this!” and make it clear not only to this particular developer, but to ALL developers that the marine reserve is OFF-LIMITS for development. The people in power have to be convinced that it is in their own best political interest to shut this down. That is the only thing that they care about – getting elected. They need to know that if this does not get shut down, they will be voted out of office…and their gravy train will come to an end.

    Good luck to all those showing up today. I wish I could be there with you!

    • WHO OF SOUND MIND AND CONCERN WOULD NOT AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENT….BUT…..THE POLITICOS KNOW , THAT THE VOTING PUBLIC…HASNT A CLUE OF WHAT THEY DO, LONG TERM…. BUY BEING LOYAL TO A POLITICAL PARTY. RATHER THAN A POLITICAL VIEW.
