The MAR Fund focuses on the Mesoamerican Reef Ecoregion (MAR)


The Mesoamerican Reef is a system of interconnected and interacting marine ecosystems arching through the territorial waters of Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico. As the second largest reef system in the world, it is the backbone ecosystem for the Mesoamerican eco-region, critical to the ecological and economic health of the entire Southern Atlantic area. It is not only a source for countless marine resources and ecological services, it is also the life support system for the region. Quite simply, if the Mesoamerican Reef is not healthy and thriving, the region and its millions of people will not be healthy or thriving either.
