TIDE is working on the front line of conservation by using the new intelligence-based Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool or ‘SMART’. The spatial monitoring tool is being trialed in Port Honduras Marine Reserve (PHMR) to increase the efficiency of enforcement in the reserve and decrease illegal fishing.
The use of ‘SMART’ and the training of the rangers could not have been possible without the hard work of Julia Baker and Seleem Chan. We also want to say a big thank you to the PHMR rangers for persevering and putting ‘SMART’ into action.
