PM Dean Barrow:

"The Deputy Prime Ministerís Ministry will award no lease or sale of land in excess of ten acres."

Hopefully this will help settle the issue of Cangrejo Caye.

Depends on how you measure it.
Hol Chan wants to include Cangrejo in a protected area to further protect the Hol Chan Marine Reserve from damage that might be caused to the Reserve from neighboring propertys activity like dredging ,sea walls and such. I feel better that they are on the case.

I meant to ask what size - in acres - is the area of Cangrejo caye - by itself, not as a part of a proposed extension of Hol Chan reserve.

You could ask the surveyors who are out there cutting sight lines...they should know.

I just got off the phone with Hol Chan main office , I wanted to check if it was them doing the survey, because i know its part of their plan to include Cangrejo as part of the protected are of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. They want to pervent damage to the reserve from development of nearby mangroves, seabed and islands.
They say 'No' its not them doing the survey.
And 'Yes' they are planning to include Cangrejo in the protected area.
I ask if they were concerned about the survey and got a yes.
OK whos going out and ask the surveyor ?
