Hol Chan releases Reef Currents

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

The Northern Marine Reserve Management Unit has launched a new initiative, a quarterly newsletter spearheaded by the Hol Chan Marine Reserve staff. Reef Currents, is geared to inform stakeholders in the protected areas in and around San Pedro Ambergris Caye about some of the work being done in protecting the environment. The newsletter is expected to be an important communication tool between the management of the marine reserves and the stakeholders including tour operators, hoteliers, visitors, students and the local residents.

The newsletter features short articles on the environment, improvement at the marine reserves, activities being done by the different marine reserves and a cartoon section. “We are inviting readers to submit comments and feedback,” stated Hol Chan Marine Reserve Manager Miguel Alamilla. Alamilla added that, “we want the newsletter to be as interactive, dynamic and interesting as possible. As we work on the different issues we will be making new additions to the newsletter.” The newsletter is mass emailed to various individuals and organizations while hard copies are distributed in strategic areas including the Hol Chan Marine Reserve Office.

The first issue was released in June and the other issue of the newsletter will come out in October. To get a copy of the newsletter you can contact the Hol Chan Office at 226-2247 or email them at [email protected]
