School Outreach

Because we recognize that long-term resource sustainability can only be achieved through improved education and community participation, the RMP has developed an education program targeted at Roatan’s new generation.

Having started in 2006 where we visited only three schools, the RMP Education Program has so far incorporated 12 schools and three education facilities from 12 communities around the island: West End, Sandy Bay, La Colonia, Mud Hole, Corozal, Gravel Bay, Coxen Hole, Los Fuertes, French Harbor, Punta Gorda, Jonesville and Camp Bay. The Program is interactive and aims not only to bring marine education to the classroom, but to bring the classroom to the reef. More than 4,000 kids in Roatan have been provided with environmental education since the program started and the number is increasing every year!
