It's been confirmed that a National Geographic Magazine crew was on the Island the last week of May. They came to obtain information and photographs to prepare a feature on the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. An eight-page spread will be printed early next year.
The crew spent countless hours underwater at the Reserve, taking professional underwater photographs. Locals are proud that National Geographic recognizes and is capturing the stunning underwater world of our Barrier Reef and protected underwater Park.
Local San Pedranos and expats alike are pleased that National Geographic will highlight the value of Belize's Barrier Reef. Island residents are increasingly committed to sustainable practices critical to assure the reef's long-term survival.
