By BBN Staff: On August 19, 2021, the University of Belize (UB) and the Turneffe Atoll Sustainability Association (TASA) signed an agreement for TASA to construct a terrestrial trail system and a pier, and a docking facility on the Calabash Caye Field Station.
According to a statement from UB, TASA is the NGO appointed by the Fisheries Department under the auspices of the Ministry of the Blue Economy and Civil Aviation, as the co-manager for the Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve (TAMR) tasked with the responsibility of daily on-site management of the marine reserve.
UB says that it is very pleased to strengthen its relationship with TASA and sees this agreement as the foundation for heightened sharing of expertise in marine conservation and research for the development of both institutions.
“We look forward to partnering with TASA and how we can complement efforts so that UB and TASA can collaborate effectively and efficiently in the future. This project not only contributes to monitoring and research, which is a mandate for both institutions, but it will build opportunities for future collaboration and development on Calabash Caye,” Vincent Palacio, the UB Interim President said.
“TASA also looks forward to continuing our partnership with the University of Belize as our key science support and intends to deepen this collaboration in the coming years,” TASA Executive Director, Valdemar Andrade expressed.
The University of Belize thanked the Executive Director of the Board of TASA, Valdemar Andrade, for endorsing the agreement and looks forward to a fruitful partnership with TASA in the development of the Calabash Caye Field Station.
