    The Mesoamerican Caribbean Ecoregion (MACR) extends over 1,000 km along the coastlines of Yucatán Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras, and supports the second longest barrier reef in the world, a diverse array of fauna and flora, and numerous rich nursery/feeding grounds. To help guide conservation efforts toward preserving the integrity of this unique ecoregion, WWF initiated Ecoregional Conservation Planning (EC) by supporting the development of a MACR Biodiversity Database and sponsoring an Ecoregional Conservation Planning Workshop in Cancun in April 2000. A preliminary goal of the EC process is to identify a network of conservation priority sites that will represent the region’s biodiversity, while contributing to the maintenance and resilience of ecological processes. This report aims to provide a greater understanding of the region’s biodiversity and present the results and recommendations of the EC workshop.
