Nestled off the North Coast of Honduras and surrounded by the exquisite Caribbean Sea, the tropical paradise of Roatan is blessed with thick and lush rainforest hilltops, pearly white stretches of shores encircling clear turquoise waters and a rich barrier reef. The island has a lot to offer to its visitors from an unbelievable array of native animals, birds, reptiles and marine life. However, the ecosystem and environment of the island both above and below the waters is very fragile and need to be maintained within a delicate balance in order for everyone to continue enjoying its beauty. Unfortunately, the unique atmosphere of the island has begun to deteriorate as a result of pollution and population growth. There are a number of local communities, groups, and organizations that actively work towards reversing these effects and protecting the climate and ecosystem of Roatan. Wild Roatan is one such organizations that run a number of education campaigns and programs to spread awareness among locals and tourists.
Ocean and Wildlife Conservation
Wild Roatan was created with the purpose of conservation of the Roatan environment, with sustainability and preserving the natural habitat of both marine life, land mammals and reptiles. Wild Roatan works in ocean conservation, education, wildlife preservation and a sustainable program for long term development of local communities. It does so via the development and marketing of eco-friendly products that are sustainable.
These items include clothing items such as colorful and stylish t-shirts and tank tops that have a lot of personality. They make for perfect Roatan keepsakes to remember your trip by or bought as gifts and souvenirs for family and friends. They also carry develop micro-businesses in partnership with local residents and communities and organize travel and tourism programs with local businesses.
Beach Clean Ups
Beach clean-ups are an important component of Wild Roatan. You will be surprised at the amount of trash littering the beach as the local population grows day by day. As Roatan opens its doors to more tourists, important steps need to be taken to make sure that the beaches and surrounding reefs and marine life are being protected. Roatan is slowly emerging as a world-famous tourist destination due to the green image it presents to the public which must be sustained.
The beach clean-ups developed by Wild Roatan are organized and coordinated in conjunction with local communities and groups, where we combine the available resources and generate long term positive results. Even as a tourist, you can partner up with us for the beach cleanup projects that are frequently carried out through the year. The best way to support our projects is through the purchase of our clothing items and products which are available online. These can be ordered from anywhere within the U.S and Canada, for individual purchases or bulk orders.
