The Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve: Creating awareness of the importance of a Marine Protected Area in coastal communities of the Toledo District.
The project is aimed at developing the capacity of TASTE in its role as co-manager of the SCMR. Throughout the project timeline, TASTE will strive to ensure continued and increased community involvement working through participants in the outreach programmes. Participation will be built through additional visits to communities. The project will have an ongoing evaluation/monitoring component.

It is expected that at the completion of this project, 80% of its targeted population (Students in Standard 5 to 6 in Primary Education and first to fourth form high school students) will be better able to understand the value of marine natural resources and the ecological processes that maintain them. Additionally, they will become aware of all the factors that threaten the well being of our coral reef ecosystems at the Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve. Furthermore, it is anticipated that through the efforts of this project, at least 80% of the participants will be motivated and become proactive in the reduction of threats to the marine environment. Finally, if is projected that at least 300 youths will have been exposed through field experience to the Sapodilla Cayes.
