Preservation of crucial eco-systems is never a bad thing. These tropical rain forests give life to the planet, including the very oxygen that we all breathe. 75 percent of all medicines originate in rain forest. Eco-tourism is way more profitable, not to mention sustainable, than the export of tropical hardwoods. Hopefully, the Belizean government will find ways to help the (fairly small) population of that area to coexist, benefit, and profit from/with the needs of the environment. These last few pristine places on the planet harbor untold wonders, and should be preserved for the health, and enjoyment of all creatures - human and otherwise.
