Outreach Program

Education And Outreach Programs

In order to ensure stewardship and support management activities, SEA is developing a comprehensive understanding amongst stakeholders of all ages about the importance of marine conservation and the realities of MPA management. Over the years, there has been a growing incorporation of environmental education and conservation principles into the yearly curriculum for all elementary and high school students.

Belize Environmental Education

Teachers are frequently looking to organisations like SEA to offer courses or activities that will further enhance these in class sessions. Previous environmental education programs have further illustrated the impact that a simple day spent actually experiencing the World Heritage Site can provide for young learners. Most students (and adults) return from these experiences ready to go out and improve their communities and the environment.

Belize Environmental Education

Students receive an invigorating experience while visiting the Marine Protected Areas and Fishermen a more comprehensive knowledge of what is happening in their MPA’s as well as Clearer understanding of the rules and regulations of Marine Protected Areas in Belize.
