Saving the Belize Barrier Reef from Offshore Oil Exploration

Saving the Belize Barrier Reef from Offshore Oil Exploration

Project Goal

The goal of this project is to build public awareness on the impacts and risks of oil exploration and drilling within the territorial waters and protected areas of Belize and garner enough local and international support through petitions, letters to the government of Belize, and, a rally (should the need arise), to get the government to effect a ban on oil exploration and drilling offshore and in protected areas in Belize by 2011 leading to the development of a Policy on Oil Exploration and Protected Areas for Belize that will safeguard protected areas and ecosystems including the Belize Barrier Reef and guide Belize’s energy developments.
