Just spent a wonderful week with the SPAGS (spawning aggregations) team from ERI (Environmental Research Institute) at Calabash Caye Field Station on Turneffe Atoll. Wonderful group of talented, dedicated young Belizeans working to understand and protect our marine resources. Won't have time to process the images till mid-May, but selected this one while archiving the RAWs. A school of permit feeding in a 10' layer of green water at the surface near the Elbow swam by (fly fisherman take note...). Loved the sun rays behind them. Off to Cara Blanca Pools this afternoon ... combining SCUBA and jungle this time.

Supporting a Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve in Belize

Supporting a Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve in Belize | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

Turneffe Atoll is one of the largest and most ecologically varied locations in Belize...and some people in Belize are trying to keep it that way.

 

"...Nearly a decade ago, Turneffe Atoll Trust was formed to help implement an environmental success story, one in which a globally significant ecosystem gained protection before an environmental crisis hit. Turneffe Atoll is currently healthy and as of yet, does not need to be fixed. What it urgently needs, however, is protection and management so it doesn’t fall victim to further improper development, unsustainable commercial activities, and environmental degradation...."
