San Pedro Needs Beach Rake

While the San Pedro community is taking care of its sargassum issues, it still needs all the help it can get. Notwithstanding its location on Ambergris Caye, the entire island stretches for twenty-five miles. Mayor Nunez says there are a few things on his council’s wish list that, if they are lucky to get, would make it easier to manage the sargassum invasion.

“It is very difficult for the Council to work all the different areas, especially up north. You have all these different resorts that are working on their specific area. One of the things that I would really want to see here on the island is the beach rake, like the one that Caye Caulker has because that would help us. Even though we would have to take it out from the water, once it is out of the water we can pick it up quite easily and quickly. Up north, there is a lot of garbage as well that floats in and we can also clean those areas with a beach rake. We are in constant communication with the B.T.B., who has already pledged to assist us with a beach rake. The Council is tasked mostly from the Town centre, but whichever areas we can assist, we want to help.”
