“Coral reef colonies found in the Biosphere Reserve of “Banco Chinchorro”, which are part of the Mesoamerican Reef, are absolutely healthy, despite global warming, hurricanes, climate change and human interaction“, said the regional director of the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP), Francisco Ricardo Gomez Lozano.
“The coral has undergone changes, modifications and damage from natural disasters or accidents, but its natural condition is healthy“. He added that: “What happens in Belize, Honduras, Guatemala and Cuba affects reefs found in the Mexican Caribbean and vice versa, so it is important to continue with effective conservation strategies”.
“Most of the coast of Quintana Roo is protected by natural reserves, although we know that the climate has caused changes in the corals, such as bleaching. In addition there was also damage done by shipwrecks and grounding of boats. But we are working to decrease the number of these type of accidents” concluded Gomez Lozano.
