The Tropics: Opportunities and Challenges
An Exploration of Human-Environment Relationships in Belize
Tobacco Caye Marine Station is one of the very few islands that are situated directly on the Belize Barrier Reef. This makes the island an ideal location for study and research of the marine environment, as access to the reef and its associated habitats are easily accessible from the shore of the island. More diverse habitats are just a short boat ride away, enabling us to focus on our mission of education, training, public service and scholarly research.
TCMS is a marine-based research and education centre that offers immersive learning programs and training opportunities for groups from various organizations including universities, colleges, high schools, and elementary schools. Our goal is to educate while serving as a model of conservation.
We provide support for independent researchers and postgraduate students, and conducts scientific research work, either independently or in collaboration with other institutes or laboratories.
