Offshore drilling and oil spills would devastate Belize’s Barrier Reef System, diverse marine life, and economy.
Oceana has worked in Belize for years to protect this unique ocean ecosystem, and now Belizean leaders are taking action. On October 20th 2017, legislation to enshrine a moratorium on offshore oil activity in Belizean waters was introduced in Belize’s House of Representatives. Concerned ocean advocates like you have the chance to add your voice of support for this historic move.
Tell Belizean leaders you want them to enact a law that safeguards world renowned marine assets from the inherent threats of offshore oil.
