Illegal logging in Boom Creek Area

During the dry season PGTV office is usually flooded with calls pertaining to illegal logging taking place in the Toledo District. Yesterday we received several calls of illegal logging taking place in the Boom Creek area; PGTV went to the scene and saw several loggers going in and out of the area. PGTV is trying to find out why this continues to happen and if the loggers have a valid logging license. Unconfirmed reports to PGTV are that people all the way from Bella Vista and Guatemala are back in the bushes cutting down trees. These people are working for a few privileged Belizean’s who somehow managed to get a license;But according to the law, before a license is approved the community must be informed and so far no community can say that they were consulted.
