Location Punta Gorda, Toledo, Belize
Introduction With oil companies just a few months away from beginning to drill in our precious national park, the work of SATIIM has never been so important. We are empowering the indigenous people of southern Belize to have their voice heard in the development debate. Whether and how resource extraction should take place on their traditional lands is not a matter for the Government alone to decide. Sarstoon-Temash Institute for Indigenous Management (SATIIM) is advancing community participation, promoting sustainable alternatives and protecting the land and wildlife of the Sarstoon-Temash region. To succeed, we need the support of the Belizean public and international community.Only then can we change the trajectory of the future of Belize for everyone's benefit.
