Celebrating the Seventh Anniversary of Reef Week in Belize
Since the Barrier Reef is under threat and pressure from different elements, something needed to be done to protect our natural wonder. The reef has always been something special to this country because of its beauty and significance to the people. As it relates to tourism and the fishing industry, the reef provides millions of dollars in income. To get the majority of the country to help and realize the importance to protect the reef can contribute to a longer life span for the reef.
Reef Week 2020 is a week full of fun events all contributing to the awareness of our national resources. Below is the schedule for reef week. Everyone is welcome to join and make this event successful.
