As part of Green Reef's commitment to community involvement and education, a weekly newspaper column based on marine topics and issues is written by Green Reef staff and published in the San Pedro Sun.
These articles are usually based on a specific marine organism endemic to the area, a type of habitat or environmental issue that is of importance to residents of Ambergris Caye. Ann Hayden, a Peace Corps Volunteer who worked with Green Reef from 1998-2000, first initiated these articles. After coming to work with Green Reef in August of 2000, Jill Hepp and Nicki Vassak are other volunteers who have since taken over writing the articles after hearing many positive comments regarding the weekly addition to the newspaper.
Green Reef welcomes your feedback and is also interested in knowing if there are certain topics or issues that you would be interested in reading about as a Reef Brief. Please send comments or suggestions via email to Green Reef.
