Beach view to the sea in Hopkins Village, Southern Belize
Hopkins Village, Southern Belize. This coastal Garifuna community relies on tourism and fishing as economic mainstays. This is a common story in Belize. The Hopkins experience is a case study that demonstrates the need to support protection efforts of Belizean jobs in these two industries. Investments by the Government of Belize to upgrade the road compliments the strong investor confidence in the village's potential as a tourist destination. Join efforts to protect these livelihoods and say "No!" to offshore oil in Belize.
