Eyes on the Ground

As you may have heard, an oil spill off the coast of the nation of Trinidad and Tobago, measuring over 160 kilometers in length, has now entered the waters of Grenada. We have reached out to our network of citizen scientists and wildlife advocates in the region and, fortunately, none have seen oiled wildlife thus far. Gulls returning to the Grenadines from South America will be traveling over the spill area and hopefully avoiding contamination. Our team will continue to monitor the situation, keeping eyes on the ground (or water as the case may be) to determine if an oiled wildlife response is needed. 

We are already seeing the devastation to Trinidad's coastline and reefs and its effect on the tourism industry, forcing some resorts to close beaches. Oil spills can have long-term effects on the health of humans and wildlife and affect fisheries, so continued monitoring is necessary.

Thanks to donors like you, we can support our team as they monitor remote islands in the Grenadines archipelago. Our goal is to ensure these sites remain a refuge for diverse wildlife, from seabirds to sea turtles to rare reptiles for generations to come. 

We greatly appreciate your continued support!
