The lines of work that guide the actions of the Mesoamerican Reef Conservation project are:
The Mesoamerican Reef Conservation project is focused on the reef shared by Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras.
Since 2015, 34 projects have been approved that have strengthened local MPA communities in monitoring, coral restoration, good practices in tourism, solid and liquid waste management, climate change, and participatory MPA management, among others.
In the first half of 2022, three subprojects corresponding to the 13th call of the MAR Fund Small Grants Program were completed. Amigos de Isla Contoy rescued and safeguarded coral species susceptible to tissue loss disease. Centinelas del Agua established a network to monitor water quality and raised awareness among almost 500 people about the importance of karst aquifers in the Yum Balam flora and fauna protection area. In turn, Comunidad y Biodiversidad trained 13 agents of change in conservation, governance, and sustainable fishing and 20 fishermen in the use of the PescaData application to record sustainable fishing practices.
