Wednesday, February 16, 2005 – Giles Romulus, who spearheaded St. Lucia’s mission, which brought world recognition to the Pitons Management Area has thrown a word of caution to those who will manage the site.

Speaking to the GIS, following the official Inscription Ceremony of the Pitons Management Area on Monday, February 14, he said the nation must ensure that this honour was never hampered through bad management of the area.

The dream for Mr. Romulus started in 1989, when a system of protected areas was being developed for the island. He was at that time engaged in research and saw the World Heritage recognition as an important designation for St. Lucia and the majestic Pitons.

Mr. Romulus said the long road to Monday’s inscription ceremony of the Pitons Management Area brought with it immense challenges, but the success he said, would endure.

The Piton Management area is some 11 square miles of land on the South West of St. Lucia, and includes the Pitons, Sulphur Springs and the Soufriere Marine Area.
