Thoughts on “Segment Five”

  1. Tim Ellis says:

    We walked down the easy trail to the Emerald Pool which is a truly beautiful place, and we were delighted to see it so well maintained and free of litter. We were disappointed though at the Visitor Centre to find souvenir merchants selling bottles of snake oil which is illegal in Dominica and the production of which threatens the survival of the island’s endangered reptiles. Why does the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry not enforce the law?
