A Tool for Reef Recovery: Six Eastern Caribbean countries launch region’s first coral reef report cards

June 8th

As we celebrate World Oceans Day today, The Nature Conservancy’s Eastern Caribbean Program is happy to announce the launch of the first ever Coral Reef Report Cards for the six Eastern Caribbean countries of St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada.  CaribNode.org, which is an online data-mapping platform for marine managed areas, is also being launched today across the 6 countries.

Together, the report cards and the CaribNode are an important resource to educate communities and leaders about the health and status of our reefs, and to make informed decisions on marine resource management.
