After months and months of planning Marine Station #1 was placed at the Hol Chan Channel yesterday Feb 26th. The purpose of the fixed station is to aid ease of access into the Reserve and function as check in point for all vessels entering the Reserve. It will also allow the Rangers to focus on their core function, enforcement of the rules and regulations of the Reserve, enforcement of the fisheries regulations, and provide for 24hr monitoring of the area to improve management.
Thanks to the San Pedro Tourist Guide Association for all the help, and special thanks to all HCMR staff it has been a long road to get to this point.
A second Marine Station will soon be placed at Mexico Rocks.
