Defend Cayo Rosario

The Hol Chan Marine reserve is now in imminent danger with a recently approved development project on and around tiny Cayo Rosario (Rosary Caye “Key”).  The government of Belize has approved both large scale dredging and massive over-the-water construction around the small island. The pristine flats around Rosario are some of the finest permit flats in the country.  The fly fishing industry directly and indirectly supports 1000’s of jobs on Ambergris Caye and attracts many more visitors to the island each year.

  • The San Pedro Tour Guides Association unanimously opposes this project.
  • The Belize Tourism Industry Association (BTIA) opposes the project.
  • Fishing lodges, hotels and businesses oppose the project.
  • International organizations such as Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and international companies such as Yellowdog Fly Fishing and Orvis oppose the project.

Stand with the guides & the people of Ambergris Caye to say NO to destructive dredging and over-the-water development in Belize’s Hol Chan Marine Reserve.
