Green Reef educates teachers
Green Reef hosted a group of thirty teachers for the 7th Annual Teacher's Study Tour (sponsored by the Belize Zoo Education Department) Wednesday, August 11 at the San Pedro Town Hall. The focus of this year's tour was the impact that inland activities have on the marine environment.
Mayor Nunez welcomed the group of teachers to San Pedro and emphasized the importance of their role in the future of Belize's youth. Green Reef, the local marine conservation non-government organization, followed by giving a presentation covering basic reef ecology, paying particular attention to the negative impacts caused by agriculture, industry, and aquaculture activities. These activities impact the coastal environment by introducing pollutants. such as agrochemicals, to the water and consequently threatening the health of the reef. Solutions to these impacts, such as enforcement or regulations. were suggested, but Green Reef emphasizes that true change must begin on an individual level. The presentation concluded with a question and answer session.
