UNESCO status forces change on Reunion's island farmers

Farmers hurt by limitations brought about after much of French territory east of Madagascar became world heritage site.

    Five years ago, 40 percent of Reunion, a French territory east of Madagascar, was named a UNESCO World Heritage site and turned into a national park.

    The territory's special status attracts tourists, but farmers who live in the park are being forced to change their way of life due to new limitations.
