Communicating the health of the Mesoamerican Reef

Communicating the health of the Mesoamerican Reef

The Mesoamerican Reef, or MAR, is the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, extending more than 1,000 kilometers along the coasts from Mexico to Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. But why is it important? And why does its health matter?

EJN held this webinar as part of our Mesoamerican Reef Reporting Project to help journalists sort through the facts and produce engaging journalism about this important ecological region. 

Speakers:

  • Melanie McField - Director at Healthy Reefs for Healthy People
  • James Fahn - Executive Director at Internews’ Earth Journalism Network
  • Lucy Calderón Pineda - Mesoamerican Reef Editor at Internews’ Earth Journalism Network
