Saturday, May 16th, 2015. BMG: OCEANA is the largest international organization devoted to ocean conservation and here in Belize, they are working tirelessly to protect Belize’s pristine barrier reef from offshore oil drilling.

In an effort to bring awareness, Oceana has organized a national campaign titled “Hands Across The Sand against Off Shore Exploration” at 12 noon today and is inviting the general public across the country to stand in solidarity against offshore oil drilling.

You can get more details about this event on this flyer which they have been circulating on social media:

Oceana 3The Hands Across the Sand campaign started in 2010 and has grown into an international movement after the BP oil spill in the gulf of Mexico.
