A large portion of the Mexico Rocks Marine Reserve beachside in northern Ambergris Caye was cleared of a large amount of garbage on Saturday, January 25th during a clean-up conducted by a group of students from Belize City’s Saint Catherine Academy (SCA) and volunteers from San Pedro Town. The group of students, who are Oceana’s wavemakers, were welcomed on the island by fellow schoolmate, island environmentalist, and activist Carina Paz. Along with the help of Martin John (MJ) Leslie, Paz facilitated a very successful clean-up campaign.

SCA’s teachers and students arrived on the island shortly after 9:30AM and after a short briefing on the beach, they boarded two vessels from Ambergris Divers’ dock and headed north of the island. Despite a rainy start, the group was not deterred, and after a short boat ride, they were on the beach in the proximity of the Mexico Rocks Reserve getting ready to get some rubbish off the beachside. Paz told The San Pedro Sun that this is the second beach clean-up they have conducted on Ambergris Caye. “Last year we wanted to do something for the environment, so we decided to do a beach clean-up here on the island. It has now become an annual activity and we feel proud to be contributing to the preservation of our delicate coastal environment,” said Paz.

Armed with biodegradable garbage bags and gloves, the group removed a great amount of rubbish from the beach. The items most collected included plastic bags, Styrofoam products, straws, bottle caps, plastic bottles, plastic utensils, and even fiberglass material. Some of the participants stated that they hope the public would abstain from littering and understand how detrimental trash can be for the natural environment. The clean-up yielded several large bags full of garbage, which were then taken away by Chris Summers from the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES).
