Dangers of Peatland Loss


The following is a video about the dangers of draining peatlands, such as the Great Morass here in Negril.  The Great Morass is home to a great variety of plants and animals, many of them endemic to Jamaica. While the video is specifically about palm oil production in South East Asia, the message still applies to Jamaica as well.  One of the reasons the Royal Palm Reserve was established was to prevent the loss of peatland in the Great Morass.  Please enjoy the video and we would love to hear your comments..
