ABOUT
RESEARCH

We collect valuable data from our marine ecosystems to help us improve our conservation efforts. 

RESEARCH
IS POWER 

Our research program is our most recent endeavor. Over the last two years, we have brought together an amazing group of Honduran researchers to lead the way and ensure we are making science-based decisions towards the efficient management of marine resources.

SCTLD

The RMP team has worked around the clock to engage local stakeholders in the early detection of SCTLD, hosting workshops to teach coral identification and how to recognize SCTLD.

RESTORATION

Our coral restoration program uses an asexual reproduction technique known as fragmentation to ‘grow’ corals on tree-like structures in our nursery.

INVASIVE

SPECIES

In an effort to reduce the destructive impact of the invasive lionfish  on the coral reef ecosystem, the Roatan Marine Park has employed a proactive stance, directly engaging the local and visiting community to control the proliferation of this species

AGGREGATIONS

During the previous months, the RMP research team monitored two FSA sites on the island of Roatan. These sites are important for the resilience of the species and for the sustainability of most fisheries around the world.
