What do you think?

We have surveyed about 15 or so residents on their perceptions of the marine reserve and have begun a needs assessment for what the community would like to see happen.




We have had several responses on projects that would benefit the island and the community including:


  • Beach Clean-ups
  • Solar power projects
  • Improved waste management
  • A swimming area with buoys visible to boats
  • Tour guide trainings


I would love to hear you all think and what might be most important to you.

Waste management would be best, I think. So much garbage on the beach and in the water starts on land, bringing debris and algae blooms. The kind of “waste” you want to manage will decide the plan, but whatever it is it’s probably the most long term option (in my uninformed opinion).

Also, who is that smokin’ girl on the left you’re working with?

    Great advise, we actually just did a beach clean-up, some pics will be up shortly. So which person are you talking about? On my left is Kristian (he had blond dreads) and another MIIS student Margaret..
