"An Atoll at Risk" DVD


Turneffe Atoll is the largest and most biologically diverse coral atoll in Caribbean; and, in spite of its economic and conservation value, Turneffe is the only atoll in the Mesoamerican Reef System with no significant protection.   Until recent years, its relative isolation provided some element of protection; however today Turneffe Atoll is truly "An Atoll at Risk".

Improper development practices, overfishing and a lack of meaningful protections are some of the issues urgently needing attention.

Turneffe Atoll Trust  produced “An Atoll at Risk ” to educate interested parties of the risks to Turneffe Atoll and other similar marine ecosystems. The film provides insight into the challenges and potential solutions for preserving these unique and ecologically and economically valuable areas.
