Press Release – Hol Chan Marine Reserve – October 20, 2015 – A total of 20 mooring buoys were donated to the San Pedro Tour Guide Association to assist in the establishment of the recreational area at Mexico Rocks, which was recently annexed to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. The buoys were donated by Canary Cove and presented to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve on October 20th by Gil Nunez on behalf of Canary Cove and The San Pedro Tour Guide Association.
Marker buoys have been installed to demarcate the no-take zones of Mexico Rocks and the mooring buoys will be installed in early November to have it ready for the 2015 start of the tourist season. The Hol Chan Marine Reserve management has also scheduled to commence management with the presence of a Park Ranger by late November.
For further information please feel free to contact the Hol Chan office on Caribbeña Street, San Pedro Town, phone 226 2247. Dive shop owners are encouraged to schedule a “Responsible Tour Guiding Seminar” to become updated with all the rules and regulations of the newly annexed zones of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve.
We take this opportunity to express our sincere Thank You to Canary Cove for their kind donation. They have also expressed their interest to continue supporting coral reef conservation programs undertaken at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve.
