Cooma Cairn ranger outpost in Mountain Pine Ridge inaugurated

Posted: Thursday, July 20, 2023. 3:34 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: In response to increased human activity in the Cooma Cairn area of the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve in the western Cayo District, a new ranger outpost manned by Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD) was inaugurated on Monday.

In the last 14 months, FCD has sent rangers to the area in support of the Forest Department to monitor activities including forest fire incidents, infestation of bark beetles; monitoring the condition of the Upper Macal Watershed through public participation and research and human activity in the reserve, which is the gateway to the Chiquibul National Park and has seen increased human footprint due to the upgrade of the Caracol Road through the area.

The refurbished Ranger Outpost is now operational thanks to the endorsement from the Forest Department that provides for FCD’s use of the building and to Bull Run Overseas Limited for financing the refurbishing costs. This building was originally occupied by British Army Training and Support Unit Belize (BATSUB), and now will serve as the central hub for FCD’s monitoring program in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve.
