We all know how to take a selfie, right? Well if you don’t know how to, ask a friend to help you learn, because there is no better time to learn than right now. Why? Because a joint campaign by Belize’s Coalition to Save Our Natural Heritage, Association of Protected Areas Management Organization (APAMO), Oceana Belize and other stakeholders is asking Belizeans to participate in a “Say No to Offshore Oil” selfie initiative.
Belizeans are being asked to take a selfie that conveys shock, anger, etc. that Government still has not said no to offshore oil exploration/drilling. If you are on Facebook and/or Instagram, please like and/or follow and invite others to like and/or follow.
On Instagram, you can find the cause under SAYNOTOOFFSHOREOILINBELIZE
On Facebook, the page is "Say NO to Offshore Oil in Belize"
Feel free to post your selfie on your Facebook Profile, share it on the Say NO to Offshore Oil in Belize Facebook Page and post on your Instagram account as well. Make sure you use the hashtags #notooffshoreoilbelize #besensational on your posts.
Say NO to Offshore Oil in Belize:
“Belizeans are making their feelings known! If offshore oil is allowed in Belize, tens of thousands of Belizeans would be displaced when the spill happens! The economy would be crippled and Belize's world class marine environment would be permanently scarred. Join the call to have the Government declare that there will be no oil exploration or exploitation in Belizean waters. Too much depends on the Belize Barrier Reef System. Spread the word to stop offshore oil!”
Let’s start taking those selfies if you LOVE BELIZE!
