El Pescador donates to
Green Reef
On Tuesday, March 27th El Pescador Resort presented a donation to the Green Reef Environmental Institute. The contribution is part of resorts annual commitment to Green Reef’s work. The donation of $7,500 is expected to be used by Green Reef in its effort to foster the preservation of important marine habitats around Ambergris Caye.
Handing over the donation on behalf of El Pescador Resort was Chief Executive Officer Alyssa Flota. In speaking exclusively to The San Pedro Sun, Flota said that “We believe strongly in Green Reef’s ethic to protect mangrove and marine habitat used in sports fishing. We have been making a donation based on the number of guests that visit El Pescador each year.” Flota went on to explain that the donation is important to El Pescador because their focus is sports fishing. “It is also very important to the island. It is very easy for all of us to understand the importance of protecting the reef, but frequently the mangrove and sea grass habitats get left to the wayside. People believe that it is just swamp and don’t realize the importance of protecting it so we have joined the bandwagon in ensuring that it is protected.
On hand to receive the donation on behalf of Green Reef was the Executive Director Guillermo “Mito” Paz. “Every year El Pescador has been generous enough to present us with a donation. We are very happy for the donation and the partnership we have with El Pescador in looking at sport fishing conservation. It will surely go a long way in the work we do which includes research, education and habitat protection,” said Paz.
Green Reef has been an active advocate in protecting areas legislated, especially the flats on the leeward side of Ambergris Caye. Green Reef explained that the contribution from El Pescador Resort will be used by the non-governmental, non-profit organization to foster the preservation of sport fishing habitat on Ambergris Caye in an effort to promote sustainable tourism.

Missing girl Stephanie Mejia calls home
A family from the Boca del Rio area in San Pedro Town somewhat relieved after their run-away child contacted them shortly after being reported missing. The teenager is 15-year-old Stephanie Mejia who was last seen on Saturday night, March 24th in the vicinity of Central Park.
Brother, Giovanni Mejia, 21, visited the San Pedro Police Station on Tuesday, March 27th around 1PM to place the official missing person’s report. According to Mejia, his sister Stephanie went swimming with her aunt and other family members on Saturday afternoon. After spending the day at the beach, she returned home and informed her mother that she would need to meet with her classmates later that night to work on a school project.
She was last seen by her family around 8PM, when she left en route to the town core area, where she was to meet with her classmates. Giovanni states that he discovered from asking Stephanie’s friends that she left them around 8:30PM that night, en route to meet with some other friends to do her homework after which she was to head home. That was the last she was seen by anyone.
When she did not return home later that night, the family became alarmed and immediately started a search. It was not until Police released an official missing person flyer that was picked up by several media outlets that Stephanie contacted her relatives in San Pedro.
According to San Pedro Police Stephanie is still listed as a missing person until she returns home. The San Pedro Sun was able to confirm with her guardian that she is reportedly okay in Punta Gorda, and is believed to be in the company of an unidentified male.

Don Hector Silva honoured for his contribution to the nation

The National Library Service and Information System hosted a Meet the Author session yesterday. The man of the hour was none other than Belizean visionary, historian and political figure, Mr. Hector Silva Sr. Silva has published several critical writings documenting the history and development of Belize. And he was thus honored for his invaluable contribution to the nation. Students of the Belmopan Comprehensive High School and UB were in attendance to glean from one of Belize’s last living legends. David Gibson career Public Officer and diplomat gave the introduction of the author.
David Gibson
Don Hector Silva is founder of the National Agriculture Show in 1961, which we look forward to every year, an advocate for the recognition of workers’ rights and the importance of Labour Day, which became an officially recognized occasion in 1962. Drawing on his past personal and professional experiences, Don Hector has offered two very readable historical text - the George Price Legacy published in 2005 and in 2012, a brief history of the Cayo District. Judging from the content of “The Farmer Attention to Detail Anecdote,” it is certainly to be a very interesting read. He continues his research on Belizean History and often shares his thoughts and opinions through the media of television, talk shows, public radio and public forums.
Silva took the podium and proceeded to chronicle his participation in the building of Belize.
Don Hector Silva
It is an honour for me to have been selected as one of those who are seeking for the truth - gathering scattered thoughts to be able to arrive at what is the truth about Belize. Students, you all are the men and women of tomorrow and your preparation today will cause you to be great contributors to what I term as the second revolution that is now needed. We went through the first phase of the first revolution, but the movement called it the ‘Peaceful and Constructive Belizean Revolution’ – peaceful because we did not believe in violence, constructive because we had to build a nation.
He also expounded on the genesis of the movement toward independence and the players who were involved.
Don Hector Silva
Who am I? – That question was answered on September 21st 1981. Who are we? - Belizeans, above anything else. We are no longer British Hondurans, we are no longer British subjects, we are Belizeans. So who am I? That who am I actually was brought forth by a struggle. The struggle for Independence which was founded by five great men who everyone should know – John Smith who is still alive in new Orleans, George Price who passed away, Philip Goldson who also passed away, Lee Richards who passed away and Nicholas Pollard. Those five men got around a round table to plan what Belize was to be. In some instances it was very tough, but the struggle always went forward. Therefore, when that was accomplished, we were able to say I am a proud Belizean.
