Kublalsingh to approach the Ramsar Secretariat in Switzerland

NEWS GRAPHIC 6In a media conference at the bank of the Oropouche River in Debe yesterday, Highway Re-route Movement leader Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh said they will now approach the Ramsar Secretariat in Switzerland to get the Oropouche Lagoon declared as an environmentally sensitive area under the Ramsar Convention.

Efforts in their campaign to stop the former People’s Partnership government from extending the Solomon Hochoy Highway Extension Project into the Oropouche Lagoon, fell on deaf ears, the Highway Reroute Movement (HRM) is now seeking foreign help.

Kublalsingh and chemical engineer Vanita Boodhai yesterday used kayaks to travel downstream the Oropouche River to take photographs and collect samples which would be sent for laboratory testing. Boodhai said the results would form part of a report that would be sent to the Ramsar Secretariat.
