This report described the process taken to analyze the economic value of tourism in the MPAs in the BBRRS and discusses the key findings. The study provided estimates of the monetary value of goods and services from the MPAs, helping to promote the economic importance of managing the protected areas. The study focused on four of the seven MPAs that make up the BBRRS – Blue Hole & Half Moon Caye Natural Monuments (analyzed together due to co-management), Glover’s Reef Atoll Marine Reserve, and Laughing Bird Caye National Park. The remaining three protected areas were excluded due to data constraints but could be included in a future study
