Hol Chan in collaboration with the Fisheries Department - Belize, Turneffe Atoll Sustainability Association, The Nature Conservancy, and Mesoamerican Reef Fund -MAR Fund- would like to announce the open call for applicants to the Rapid Response and Emergency Reef Restoration Course to be held in San Pedro Town from May 17-20, 2022.

This course is open for advanced-level divers with pertinent diving certifications. It will provide 15 selected persons with in-depth knowledge and skills to respond to impacts caused to our reef system from tropical storms and hurricanes. These divers will become trained First Responders, who will be called upon to mitigate the damage to the reef caused by a natural disaster such as a hurricane. Persons interested should keep in mind that the purpose of the training is to have persons that will be in a position to respond immediately after a storm event to restore, as much as possible, any damage caused to the reef.

Applications can be emailed to Brigades Belize at [email protected] or via WhatsApp at +52 999 552 9284. For more information about applying, you can contact the Kirah Forman at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, or Virginia Perez at TASA. The deadline for applications is February 11, 2022, no application will be accepted after the deadline. Only limited spaces are available. Apply now to secure your position!

Please follow the link below for the application form and more details about the course:
