"By using science, we can address the vulnerability of certain coastal areas to storm surge of Typhoon Yolanda level,” said Japanese researcher Masaya Yoshikai during his presentation."
In his statement announcing this latest review, the Minister said it was "important that an independent review based on science is undertaken which reconsiders zoning boundaries to restore community confidence"
The bottom line, says Gedan, is that "estimates of the ecosystem services provided by just the oysters on an oyster reef may vastly underrepresent the reefs' overall contribution. Because oyster reefs also contain many other filter-feeding species, they will likely benefit water quality much more than previous modeling efforts suggest."
"All the mangroves areas are natural habitats for many fishes; all the babies are born there and eventually make their way towards the reef, areas like those are very critical for the reef itself; for the growth and life of our barrier reef which of course is pride for all of us in Belize. It would have basically tie in Hol Chan, it would have been expansion of Hol Chan which are the low laying areas for the fishes and Mexico Rocks in another area that was proposed for many years of part of the new marine reserve."
