Turneffe Atoll

Last year the Government of Belize passed a catch and release law, the first of any Caribbean nation, and an important first step to protecting the Turneffe Atoll, the largest and most diverse coral atoll in the western hemisphere.

Like many environmentally sensitive areas, the Turneffe Atoll is threatened on several fronts including improper development, coral reef degradation, invasive species and unsustainable commercial fishing.

Help the Turneffe Atoll to once again become a healthy ecosystem with social and economic benefits for its residents and to be an example for similar ecosystems througout the world.  Support the Turneffe Atoll Trust.
