The port Royal Pride Campaign has 3 main themes (sub-goals) with objectives around, the following themes – with completed or “in action” activities noted below:
--Natural Resource Harvesting (and specifically reducing dynamiting)
*Workshop for fishermen on sustainable marine harvesting
--Reducing the negative impact of recreational visitors from anchoring on the coral reef, parking on sand dunes and removing plants
*Workshop for Water Taxi Operators to increase their capacity for advocating environmentally friendly tourism
--Reducing littering and dumping, through creation of youth groups, along with bollard installation
*Beach and Mangrove Clean up with 140 participants
As the above summary indicates, to date the Port Royal Pride Campaign, with Marsha Mason as Pride Campaign Manager, has completed, or is currently implementing 5 activities. There are an additional 14 activities or production items – and with each – progress is being made.
This is a critical time for the campaign, whereby Marsha has lots of productions and activities on the tip of being implemented/completed – but it is going to take 100% dedication of Marsha’s time and energy, and a lot of support from her colleagues, in order to have a chance of successfully reaching the objectives.
