Highlighting 20 years of World Heritage designation, BBRRS: Working Towards better Monitoring, Management, and Awareness
The primary objectives of this project include:
1. Build and increase public awareness of the BBRRS-WHS; its economic value and actions needed to be taken off the WHS “ In Danger” list.
2. Establish Monitoring baselines for digital assessments of mangrove and littoral forest coverage within the BBRRS-WHS; and baseline plant inventory for Half Moon Caye Natural Monument in light of the recent rat eradication initiative, and South Water Caye Marine Reserve as one of the hot spots for development within the WHS.
3. Improve biosafety management of Half Moon Caye Natural Monument through establishment of measures within the site

The project’s goal and objectives are in line with the Small Grant Programme OP6 strategic initiatives–Community landscape/seascape conservation speaks to "Support the development of strategic interventions at landscape/seascape towards achieving sustainable use and management of marine and terrestrial resources". In addition to the GEF operative strategic objectives, we also seek to educate and create awareness on the Belize’s Barrier Reef Reserve System, its beauty, and the needs for it to be present for all to enjoy for years to come.
