By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Five Belizeans are participating in a Scuba certification and marine monitoring program through a joint U.S. Embassy-Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE) project.
The U.S. Embassy noted that Earth Glow is providing youths in the Toledo District with skills to conduct real, hands-on research on threats to reef and ocean health and help Belize conserve its waters.
U.S. Embassy Environmental Officer Vince Lowney joined the trainees diving the Caribbean Sea as they finished their SCUBA certification and will progress to conservation training in the next phase.
“Our planet is constantly changing, impacting every facet of our world. Keeping coastal communities, economies, and ecosystems adaptable and healthy requires monitoring and assessing ocean and coastal areas. All of this means more information, which means a more comprehensive understanding of our planet,” the U.S. Embassy said.
The participants will share their journeys as they complete the training.
“Together, for #oceanconservation, we are equipping youth to become future stewards of #Belize’s rich marine resources and pilot solutions to their generation’s greatest challenges,” the U.S. Embassy added.
