Marine Reserve Education for Local Belizeans

Lisa Mulcahy

This video describes the marine education program at South Water Caye Marine Reserve. Currently funding allows them to work with only a few schools in the Dangriga area to have one field trip out to the marine reserve with no continuation funding for future years. Continued education is needed to show children alternatives to fishing and teach them to be stewards of their marine reserve. Funding would provide for many years of field trips for all of the primary schools near the reserve as well as scholarships for students who excell in their marine science studies to be REEF KEEPERS. This allows students another possibility other than fishing and a means to continue their education to secondary school, which is not free in Belize. Please help us continue this worthwhile program.
