Enforcement for Turneffe Atoll

Every once in a while there is a bit of good news… this is one of those times.

It is relatively easy to pass laws. It is a harder thing to get laws enforced.  Enforcement is what is now going to happen on Turneffe Atoll.  Good stuff.

Thanks to a joint agreement between Turneffe Atoll Trust, the Belize Fisheries Department and Coast Guard, enforcement has finally come to Turneffe. Protecting the fishery from illegal poaching and other unsustainable activities, patrols will be conducted on a daily basis and cover the entire atoll. Most importantly, this is a giant step forward in our effort to create a Marine Reserve.
