Taiwan Ambassador Visits Chiquibul
A helicopter had not landed at Las Cuevas Research Station in many years. That changed in September when the Taiwanese Ambassador to Belize, Mr. Charles Liu and his staff, accompanied by the Commander of the Belize Defence Force, General David Jones visited the research station, located in the heart of the Chiquibul.
The objective of the visit was to observe the majestic Chiquibul forest, the Chiquibul caverns and make a handing over of a donation to FCD which would be used for protection of the Chiquibul Cave System.
For the third year in a row, the Council of Agriculture and Forestry Bureau of Taiwan has approved FCD’s proposal, that has enabled us to enhance protection of the scarlet macaw, improved FCD facilities, and this year will strengthen the capabilities of the karst management unit.
FCD is thankful to the Council of Agriculture and Forestry Bureau of Taiwan and the Republic of China (Taiwan) Embassy for their ongoing support in building the capabilities of FCD.
