Introduction 

The Yucatan peninsula has a rich biodiversity that is threatened by the expanding development of the tourist industry. In only 35 years, the population grew 1220%! Development in most of the areas surrounding the reefs are having negative effects on the ecosystems and freshwater supplies, this is due to the lack of updated data regarding the marine ecosystems that can be integrated into the management plans. This negatively impacts the health of the reef as there are more coral diseases etc.



Report 

Working with local partners, together we intend to identify, protect and preserve areas with high biodiversity, as well as those ones that are essential to maintain the ecological processes of the species. Restore areas of the reef that have been negatively impacted by placing coral nurseries and monitoring their evolution. Developing management plans for the region, to work on capacity building and environmental education with the locals to ensure the protection and survival of these ecosystems.

Report 

There are a number of different programs being conducted around the Yucatan peninsula such as; creating no-fishing zones, developing integrative coral reef stress response, monitoring the reefs, coral restoration and creating policies that will help the marine environment. This project has been assisting these programs by conducting research and gathering data around these areas as well as helping to rebuild and restore these incredible reefs. A donation of $50 provides enough fuel for the boat to get our researchers to one of their sites.

Dear Supporters,

Early October our community along the gulf coast of Mexico was told to prepare for another grade 4 Hurricane called Delta that was fast approaching. 

2020 has certainly been a challenging year as many of our operations had to take a huge cut due to COVID-19, making our restoration projects and marine awareness projects come to almost a halt. In early October Hurricane Delta hit our coastline and as such has had an even bigger impact on our incredible reef. Our local team have begun emergency response to the damage and are working on our restoration project in partnership with other local authorities. Our restoration project is planned to take over 10 years to complete and following the recent hurricane season the local area has experienced serious damage that needs our intervention fast. 

 

Thank you for your support,

Tyrone and our Team in Mexico!
