By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Forest Rangers are battling wildfires inside the Elijio Panti National Park in San Antonio, Cayo.

On Sunday, the team at the Elijio Panti National Park was informed of wildfire near the Park.

Initial reports suggest that the fire may have originated from unauthorized agricultural burning, breaching any established fire containment measures.

“We strongly urge our farmers to adhere to responsible burning practices, as illegal burning is subject to legal penalties. Our team has promptly reported the incident to higher authorities for further investigation. As we delve into the matter, we will provide updates accordingly,” the team said.

The Team urges all villagers and residents to unite in safeguarding the forests surrounding the picturesque village, which serve as the primary attraction for tourists and visitors.

“These forests also play a crucial role in preserving our freshwater sources and providing habitat for numerous animal species. Together, let’s strive to protect our forests, for they are essential to life itself,” the team urged.

As of this morning, the team said that the fire is spreading deeper into the Park and rangers are exerting tremendous effort in ground clearing and establishing a fire line.
