I'm very excited to start my new project on Belize reef carbonate budgets soon, but first, I have to turn all of this PVC pipe into sediment traps! The marine team has a lot of work ahead of us!
My intern Tristen and I sampled water on the Turneffe Atoll for Nitrogen and Phosphorus. Sadly, these levels are high, even for a reef so far removed from mainland stressors. Working with tourism and political groups can help us to repair this damage.
