“The present social and political climate in Belize offers a very promising window of opportunity. For the first time, all relevant stakeholder groups are at the table and have expressed interest in facilitating a Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve. Equally as important, permitting agencies in Belize have unofficially indicated their support” said Craig Hayes, owner of Turneffe Flats Resort and founder of TAT.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? A Marine Reserve for Turneffe… I like it. It’s a great idea. Ideas are the currency of the activist world, but money is oxygen. This stuff just doesn’t happen because you sign an on-line petition. No one reads on-line petitions… ever. To have folks in the meetings and plotting a course toward success, it takes people who think about it all the time… it takes organization and it takes money.
The Turneffe Atoll Trust is asking for your support. Do it.
