In Honduras there exists a chain of islands known as Cayos Cochinos. Recognized as a one of the key sections of the Meso-American Reef to preserve by the Smithsonian Institute, TNC, WWF, and World Bank, commercial fishing has been banned and it has become a marine sanctuary. However, the Garifuna people have lived virtually the same way since the late 1700s, are allowed to remain within the sanctuary, using traditional fishing methods to survive.
