On Saturday, October 24, 43 students ranging from several primary schools around the island, as well as the high school, participated in a cleanup campaign held by the Northern Marine Reserves. This activity took place at the turtle nesting beach in Bacalar Chico Marine Reserve.
This area was selected since it is where the turtles come to nest on Ambergris Caye. In addition, turtle monitoring that was conducted by the reserve staff, revealed that a total of 18 nests were identified in the area during this year’s nesting season. Therefore it is important to keep the area clean.
A total of 30 garbage bags of trash were collected from the beach, which was transported to town and properly disposed at the San Pedro dump site. The office of Hol Chan Marine Reserve thanks all the students who took part in this conservation activity and they look forward for their participation in other future activities.

Author Nuñez says he is grateful and honored that San Pedro High School and Isla Bonita are using and benefitting from his writings and recollections of San Pedro in the past. He invites everyone living in San Pedro to read the book and use history to help us better live in the present.
