Closure of Guanacaste National Park and St. Herman’s Blue Hole National Park due to damage suffered during Hurricane Richard.

Belize City, Belize, Thursday, October 28, 2010 - On October 24th the passing of Hurricane Richard had disastrous impacts on the country of Belize. Our protected areas were not spared; two of the most affected protected areas are Guanacaste National Park and St. Herman’s Blue Hole National Park. Both sites incurred tremendous damage with large amounts of trees having fallen. The closure of these protected areas is necessary for the safety of all concerned as damages have made most trails impassable and dangerous. The Belize Audubon Society will issue a public notice informing the public of the re-opening of these protected areas. We ask that all citizens and visitors be advised of this notice.

    A good idea to close the parks for rehabilitation.  The irony is that Dean Barrow is intentionally tryiong to close national parks in the Toledo Dist by allowing for  oil drilling exploration.  Going on now even under the protests of the villagers in the affected areas. Disaster.
