Empowering Fishing Communities in the MAR Reef

The Puerto Morelos Fishermen in action!

We would love to share with you this short video clip created by Mr. Joaquín de la Torre from the Healthy Reefs Initiative (HRI) with full support from COBI, the NGO that is providing the technical assistance to our project in Mexico. The video shows how the fishermen from the Puerto Morelos Fishing Cooperative monitor the reef. As we mentioned in our last update, they have considerably improved their monitoring skills.

Please watch and confirm it yourself!

We can't stop expressing you our gratitude! Without your support, this just would not be possible!
