The decision came after Belize’s dossier was tabled and the matter was heard by the World Heritage Committee in Bahrain today, June 26.  

Belize’s delegation to the World Heritage Committee Meeting is led by the Deputy Prime Minister, Patrick Faber and the Minister of Environment, Omar Figueroa.  

 The Ministry thanks all Belizeans who have played a role in working to satisfy the conditions for removal.  

The Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System comprises seven protected areas along the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere, including atolls, several hundred sand cayes, mangrove forests, coastal lagoons, and estuaries.  

 This outstanding natural system illustrates the evolutionary history of coral reef development and is a significant habitat for threatened marine species, including sea turtles and the West Indian Manatee.  

 The Barrier Reef and its various attractions are a part of the core foundations for Belize’s vibrant tourism industry.   

It was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996.
