A recent NY Times article shows how Australian environmental technology is being used to monitor destructive, illegal fishing activity along the Belize Barrier Reef, and, with other Green applications planned for the future, giving the non-military use of drones a good name. Belize Fisheries Department personnel are now being trained up to operate small but highly effective drones to patrol Belizean waters in a bid to combat illegal fishing, just as this year’s lobster season begins. It seems only fitting that Australia, with the world’s largest Great Barrier Reef, has developed drone technology that is coming to the aid of Belize, home to the world’s second largest barrier reef.

According to the official Earth Day website ( earthday.org), over 1 billion people in 192 countries are participating in earth’s day activities in their communities and helping depict the face of climate change. At Chaa Creek, we have started to organize this year’s Eco Kids Summer Camp Program which is a week long summer camp scholarship program for Belize’s resident school children.
We recommend Chaa Creek to any soft-adventure traveler – and really want to support the conservation incentives of the Flemings. Jean & I visited Chaa Creek in the fall of 2009. Boy, had it changed since I was there in the early 90′s – back then it was a few thatched huts and outdoor deck / restaurant set on the banks of the Macal River.

Your meals wear you down. You can’t seem to put a finger at what causes you to feel that way after every meal. Is it the greasy food or the artificial ingredients that were added to the cooked food? What happened to the old-fashioned goodness home cooked meals that they advertised?
Belize has many natural beauties which we need to protect and preserve. We as young children growing up in today’s society need to be educated at first hand experiences and learn how to protect our jewel in the Belize forest. By educating us about our natural resources, it helps to be aware of the importances and reasons why God created them.
Schools may promote environmental education, conservation practices or once a year’s celebration of Earth Day. However, the lack of real life, hands-on exposures to environmental education may lead to a generation of unaware and ill prepared young adults. We might be producing a generation of people that lacks the knowledge of sustainable and responsible living.
