Guest post by the Ya’axché Conservation Trust
This documentary was produced by Ya’axché Conservation Trust and Ajax Films in the Toledo District of southern Belize to highlight the connections between freshwater and marine ecosystems.
One of the key messages of this film is that what happens upstream affects what happens downstream and it is for this reason that we must learn to take care of our rivers for ourselves and for future generations.
This film provides a chance to see how a small number of individuals living along Toledo’s rivers are trying to make a big difference within their communities providing not just local benefits but benefits for all Belizeans.
