Who We Are
Turneffe Atoll Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the sustainable use of Turneffe Atoll and similar coastal marine environments through conservation, research and education. Over the last 14 years we have worked diligently to see that one of the truly special and unique places in our hemisphere (Turneffe Atoll) is protected from unsustainable development and other destructive forces for the benefit of stakeholders and future generations.
WHAT WE DO
Our organization works to protect Turneffe Atoll from the destructive and unsustainable practices that will, if left unchecked, destroy the very things that make Turneffe unique and special. We seek to ensure that the environmental laws of Belize are enforced and that the principles of the recently established Marine Reserve are upheld.
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
We believe that special places like Turneffe need protection and that stakeholder involvement and collaboration is crucial. Building a cohesive Turneffe community with strong relationships between commercial fishermen and ecotourism is important to the sustainability of Turneffe. Working together, these two groups can preserve this critical ecosystem for future generations.
We are based primarily in Belize with our primary office in Belize City.
