Monitoring visit at the Southern Environmental Association

Our team recently conducted a monitoring visit with our grantee, the Southern Environmental Association (SEA), on February 14 to Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve, and Laughing Bird Caye National Park.

With grant funding from the Belize Fund, SEA continues to make significant strides in marine conservation, including the procurement and installation of solar photovoltaic systems and the production of new regulation signages at 2 marine reserves, and maintenance & repairs to the ranger station at LBCNP.

Additionally, 6 rangers and an operations manager received training and certification as Fisheries Officers, empowering them to protect and preserve these precious ecosystems!

We commend SEA for their dedication and hard work in conservation efforts to manage these protected areas.

Marine protected areas play a crucial role in preserving biodiversity, supporting fisheries, and safeguarding coastal communities from climate impacts. We can all champion their importance and work together to protect Belize’s coastal and marine environments!
