The marine ecosystems of the Riviera Maya are facing a crisis - overfishing and irresponsible tourism practices, in combination with the lack of designated marine park protected areas are killing our reef and marine life.
The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, second largest in the world, is an International Protected Area. However, the section adjacent to the popular tourist destination of Playa del Carmen, remains unprotected.
The dive community, together with concerned global citizens, can make a difference. We are petitioning local and federal government to regulate responsibly, with concern for the environment.
