Hi all- I was on Caulker for a couple of weeks in May-June 1999. Beautiful island. I had a great time.
I noticed then that lethal yellowing seemed to be a creeping presence - I noticed it along the 'back' street, especially from the air strip up to the town. Looking at my pictures, there are a worrisome number of bare palm trunks. I worry because I know some neighboring islands have been nit hard by the ailment.
So what's the status these days?

Thanks for the link Marty. Very informative. If Caulker were to be as hard hit as, say, Corozal, think how devastating that would be. Much of Caulker's charm and ambiance - not to mention shade - comes from its coconut palms.
