On the 1st December ECOMAR in collaboration with the Fisheries Department, PACT and WWF are hosting a presentation for travel industry stakeholders at the Radisson Fort George in Belize City.

Five volunteer programs will be discussed. These include:

  • Belize Coral Watch program
  • Belize Turtle Watch program
  • Adopt a Beach
  • Adopt a Reef
  • Sea turtle census

These volunteer programs rely on participation and observations from both the community and travel industry stakeholders. This initiative brings alive the aims of Nurture Belize and we hope that the programs will be widely adopted. Stay tuned for up-dates.

For more information on the programs or on ECOMAR please contact Melanie Day at ECOMAR at
