Palisadoes-Port Royal is the world’s seventh largest natural harbor. It contains threatened habitats for vulnerable animals like the american crocodile, green turtle, West Indian manatee, bottlenose dolphin and lined seahorse. The threatened mangrove communities are essential for the overall biodiversity of the area. Threats addressed by this Pride Campaign include: Natural resource harvesting (dynamite fishing), negative impact of visitors (on coral reefs) and littering and dumping.


Raise awareness of threats to the area and importance of conservation. Conduct school outreach activities with a flagship species mascot to involve youth. Through education and workshops, promote proper use of natural resources.

Long-Term Impact

Benefits identified include: Conservation of a historical and biologically diverse site; development of local natural resource management capacity; improved sanitation, reduced pollution and improved environmental education and development programs.
