The Turneffe Atoll Sustainability Association (TASA) was formed by Turneffe stakeholders in 2013 for the purpose of co-managing the Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve (TAMR). In October 2013, TASA was designated as the official co-manager of TAMR. TASA has been established in a manner which ensures that all key stakeholder groups are represented on its Board of Directors and are directly involved in decision making at the highest level.
The Turneffe Atoll is the largest and most biological diverse Atoll in the Western Hemisphere and Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve is the largest marine reserve in Belize. Turneffe is located approximately 20 miles east of Belize City and encompasses an area of approximately 30 miles by 10 miles, while the Marine Reserve encompasses a significantly larger area. The atoll consists of a network of reefs, back-reef flats, creeks and lagoons, mangroves and more than 150 islands.
TASA Management Programs for TAMR include Natural Resource Management, Science, Monitoring and Enforcement, Education and Outreach, Infrastructure and Administration.
