The Importance of  Mangroves

It's easy to overlook the seemingly nondescript trees that often line the land found between the sea and the coastline. These trees don't grow fruits or nuts, nor are they ideal for shade or breeze but what they do have to offer far surpasses all of the above qualities.

My Top 5 Marine Creatures Of  Belize

I have been in Belize for 3 weeks now and have loved every moment of it – from the exciting nights out with everyone on the South island to the more chilled nights at camp playing cards on the North island. However the amazing marine life that I’ve been lucky enough to encounter is what I know will stick with me forever.

Meeting The Gentle  Giants

I have been in Caye Caulker for 3 months now and I had the opportunity to encounter numerous amazing creatures already. From the quiet nurse sharks, the curious stingrays, the shy turtles or even playful dolphins, every animal has its own behaviour and reacts differently to human presence.

Fore Reef  Dives

This week we had a wonderful opportunity to dive on the deep section of the barrier reef next to Caye Caulker, it gets pretty choppy once you get past the reef out to the open ocean and our little boat can only handle so many huge waves so we have to go when the weather is calm.

The 2nd Lionfish  Derby

Last weekend the 2nd edition of the lionfish derby took place here in Caye Caulker. Frontier is one of the member of the organisation committee alongside local businesses.  As you read in our previous blog, lionfish are a big problem here in Belize and it is in the best interest of local fishermen, tourist operators and marine conservation in general to try to mitigate the lionfish population on the reef.

Crocodile  Night

I enrolled for the marine conservation and diving programme to help the Belize Frontier Project. During my first weeks here I spent much of my time learning about corals, fishes and all the other creatures you can find on the reef of the marine reserve.

When Trash  Floats

I spend my summers in Boston, MA on the beautiful Charles River as a kayak guide. I take camp groups, business trips, tourists, bachelorette parties, you name it, out to paddle and I love being on the water. So you can imagine my excitement when I learned that there was a build-your-own raft race the week I arrived in Caye Caulker
