Belize Begins Celebrating Reef Week

The Ministry of the Blue Economy is celebrating Belize’s Reef Week with a jammed-packed calendar of activities geared at promoting the importance of our Barrier Reef. The annual week is celebrated nationally from March 9 to March 15, and aims at raising awareness on the importance of conserving Belize’s Barrier Reef. This year’s theme is “exemplary reef health benefits our nation’s wealth”. A message that Emilie Gomez Coordinator and Liaison Officer at the Ministry of Blue Economy says echoes the overall goal behind reef week.

Gomez added that Belize’s Reef system is in a healthy state but is currently under threat by the effects of climate change, and spoke about how the Ministry is working to prevent these effects.

Gomez noted that other activities such as* beach clean-ups, social media trivia games and virtual panel discussions are being held in celebration of Reef Week
