The Cayo Rosario Development Project was met with much opposition since it will threaten the environment. The Ambergris Caye Citizens for Sustainable Development had sought legal action in order to protect the Hol Chan Marine Reserve from damage that may come about as a result of the Cayo Rosario development project. However, in June the Supreme Court denied Ambergris Caye Citizens for Sustainable Development leave to seek judicial review.   Love news asked Minister Manuel Heredia, the Area Representative for Rural South for an update on Cayo Rosario.

Manuel Heredia – Area Representative for Rural South: “All I know is that there will be no dredging and as far as I am concerned I am not supporting the over the water structure. I still maintain that to this point and I will be behind the tour guides or tour operators that are against it. I will be behind them to support them in that cause, that again because I know the area, I know the habitats that are around, the abundance of marine life even though the consultant said otherwise but I know the area as a fisherman and I know it well and I believe that is supposed to be left as it is.”

Cayo Rosario is located just behind Ambergris Caye.
