Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We are one of the leading NGOs/non-profit marine conservation organizations in Belize. We have been developing and working on a wide variety of marine conservation projects to protect the Belize Barrier Reef and ocean ecosystem since 2006. We are a registered NGO in Belize as well as a registered non-profit in the USA.

Our mission is to protect our oceans through hands-on conservation action and marine environmental education and awareness. We empower everyday global citizens to take an active role in directly protecting and conserving the Belize Barrier Reef and our oceans that we love via our marine conservation projects and environmental education and awareness.

People

Our mission is to not only protect our coral reefs and oceans, but to also provide sustainable employment and job training to poor coastal Belizean communities. Our staff is comprised almost entirely of Belizeans, who we have been hired through our internship/job training program. They serve in leadership roles as managers, marine biologists, educators, and scuba dive instructors.

Our ultimate goal is to utilize scientifically researched based approaches to conserve and protect fragile marine and coastal habitats, and create livelihoods to support the culture and traditions of the coastal communities of Belize. We have demonstrated the scalable potential of marine conservation to bring lasting benefits to people and biodiversity in some of the world’s poorest coastal communities. Effective community-based conservation and sustainable management of reefs is critical to the future of Belize.
