Reef Week San Pedro kicks off with a swim to the reef challenge

As a cold front approached San Pedro, a Reef Week traditional started with the ‘Swim to the Reef’ challenge. Twenty-three swimmers participated in the early morning event on Sunday, March 7th, kicking off the week-long calendar of activities to raise awareness for preserving Belize’s Barrier Reef System and marine environment. Participants and supporters convened at Central Park at 6AM and started swimming to the reef minutes later. Rickilee Response and Rescue (Triple R) team and the Belize Coast Guard provided safety support while a vehicle equipped for emergencies was on standby at the park. There were also buoys to guide the swimmers, and boats in the area were cautioned. The group of swimmers included persons of different ages and backgrounds, from environmentalists to the private sector, students, tour and tour guides, fishermen, artists, and professional athletes.

Oceana’s 2020 National Wavemaker of the Year 17-year-old islander Carina Paz organized the event. According to Paz, the upcoming activities are a collective effort from many individuals and organizations on the island. After noticing that there was a slim chance for reef week taking place in San Pedro Town this year, she rallied support from family members and the island community in a matter of days. Paz encourages everyone to support the activities that will take place throughout the week as per the schedule above.

Reef clean-up campaign rids Ambergris Caye marine environment from a ton of debris

As Reef Week San Pedro continues, a snorkeling and free diving clean-up took place on Monday, March 8th, near the Barrier Reef. Spearheading the clean-up was islander Abner Bacad and Roan Gonzalez, who collected a boat load of trash from the sea along with volunteers. According to Bacab, the main rubbish consisted of glass bottles, including broken ones and plastic items. It is believed that many of these bottles are thrown overboard by persons passing the area on a boat. Anyone, particularly tour guides and boat captains, is asked to be more environmentally responsible and properly dispose of bottles and waste items when on the water.

The activity was to raise awareness to preserve the barrier reef and the marine environment around Ambergris Caye. Reef Week continues with activities culminating on Saturday, March 13th, with another clean-up on the island.
