What are we doing?

We are carrying out a series of community clean-up activities on the beaches of Guanaja Island, Honduras. These activities include beach cleanups, marine debris removal, and seagrass restoration in key areas of Forest Reserve Number 3 and Bay Islands National Marine Park.

We are carrying out a number of clean-up activities, including:

  • Seagrass Cleanup:
    We conduct regular seagrass cleanups in Guanaja's coastal waters to remove debris, plastics, and sediment that may threaten the health of these vital ecosystems.

  • Coastal Community Cleanup:
    We organize community cleanup activities in the coastal areas of Guanaja to collect waste and trash, thus promoting safer and healthier environments for local residents.

  • Coral Cleanup: We implement coral cleanup programs on reefs near Guanaja to remove sediments, debris, and pollutants that may harm these fragile marine ecosystems.

Why do we do it?
We carry out these community clean-up activities in order to preserve the marine and terrestrial biodiversity of Guanaja, especially in protected areas such as the Forest Reserve Number 3 and the Islas de la Bahía National Marine Park. The health of coastal ecosystems, such as mangroves and coral reefs, depends heavily on the cleanliness and conservation of beaches and seagrasses. In addition, the clean-up of these areas contributes to preventing marine pollution and maintaining a healthy environment for local fishing communities, whose livelihoods and economy are closely linked to the health of coastal ecosystems.
