Top tier production Company Cold Collaborative led by Shannon Vandivier is making this film, thus ensuring world wide distribution, helping ignite the movement: Fish for Change. We have teamed up with BICA (Bay Islands Conservation Association) so our donations are tax deductible through a non-profit 501C3. BICA Guanaja gets 8% of all proceeds which goes directly to protecting the reef, mangroves, and fishery of Guanaja. BICA has sustainable fishery plans in place for Guanaja and no means to implement, this will finally get them off the ground.
Spearheaded by Matt Nawrocki, Food For the Poor and with a little push from Fly Fish Guanaja the first ever Guanaja Honduras Hospital is being built. Without philanthropy the Guanaja Hospital and it’s proposed health care programs and surgeries would not be possible for the more than 8,000 residents of Guanaja.
Alongside locals, students plant mangroves throughout the course of the week and work to rebuild mangrove habitats. These mangroves create shelter and stability for the island and nursery habitats for juvenile fish.
Students help with literacy projects in local schools. Throughout the course of the program, they have the opportunity to be both students and teachers as they develop into leaders.
Community Art Projects
Fish for Change creates recycled art murals in town to add a little sunshine to communities. Program Students, alongside kids from the local community, work together to create uplifting artwork paralleling with Fish for Changes mission.
Recycling and Kicking Plastic
We are creating single-use plastic free campuses. Plastic is very detrimental to our planet and with proper education and awareness, we are able to educate program participants and local communities to lessen their footprint and make a difference.
BTT Fish Tagging
Bonefish Tarpon Trust educates our student on the science and research that goes into the proper protection of Bonefish, Tarpon, and Permit. Citizen science is used to create the next generation of stewards within the sport and teach the students proper handling and tagging techniques.
