24 photos

From 26 to 30 November 2018, a high-level delegation from Belize visited Australia’s Great Barrier Reef to exchange best practices on leveraging their reef’s iconic World Heritage status, to protect their fragile ecosystems from climate impacts and secure sustainable livelihoods, jobs and income for local communities. Discussions were held with, among others, the Australian Institute of Marine Science, the Queensland Minister for the Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, and while snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef.

The visit follows a series of landmark conservation actions that led to the removal of the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System from the List of World Heritage in Danger earlier this year.
