Continuously we find ourselves bursting with pride for our amazing community spirit here on Caye Caulker and Saturday was yet another day!!

The Caye Caulker Garbage Warriors, in  collaboration with Oceana Belize, conducted a trash pick-ups with over 40 villagers and children yesterday. This pickup is part of a national and international effort to spend one day picking up trash from coastal areas and waterways and Oceana provided the trash bags and the gloves with Agua Dulce providing the water.

The Garbage Warriors commenced at 8am and by 11am they were looking exceedingly weary with the mornings exercise Рhowever, together they collected more than 60 garbage bags of waste which were polluting the mangroves on the South side of Caye Caulker.  Suffice to say at the end of their endeavors the mangrove coastline looked not only clean of rubbish but quite picture perfect!!

Thank you to all concerned for making our island one of the cleanest and most beautiful!!
