Turneffe Atoll Trust – Looking for your help

“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.

MT Bonefish

That’s not Mount Bonefish, but Montana… as in some Montanans go bonefishing.  Now, it is April and here in the Bay Area tonight it will be down in the 50’s.  In Bozeman it will get down to 39.  Folks in Montana have excellent trout fishing and really, really long winters.  Therefore, I can understand why those rugged folks from Montana might, in a moment of divine weakness, look to the Caribbean for a little get-away.

This group from MT. heads to Belize, Turneffe Flats Lodge where the weather is warm and the fishing is good.  This trip was their fifth year in a row.

I don’t know at what point I get to head to a place like Turneffe Flats every year.  I don’t think that life is about to start any time soon.

I'd like to go here.
