Training local fishermen

Along with the fishing cooperatives working in Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and COBI, Amigos de Sian Ka’an is protecting over 9,000has through the establishment of community no-take zones. Moving forwards we aim to include Open Water Diver and Coral Reef Monitoring training for local fishermen, so they can get involved in monitoring the progress of the delimited areas.

 

Moreover, in the following months Amigos de Sian Ka’an and GVI will be launching a mid-term conservation project to characterize and monitor coastal habitats associated to shallow coral reefs in northern Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and Punta Gruesa, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

 

Thank you so much for all of the support which is helping us to continue conserving Marine ecosystems.
