(ALL INTERNAL RIGHTS) The Island of Petit St. Vincent, Grenada overlooking the beach and reef. Petit St. Vincent is a private luxury tourist resort island in the eastern Caribbean. These islands are ringed by barrier, patch and fringing reefs. Seagrass beds and mangrove wetlands thrive in coastal areas. They are home to numerous species of sea birds and migratory birds. Species of birds found only on this chain of islands include the Lesser Antillean tanager, whistling warbler, Grenada flycatcher and St. Vincent parrot. The Conservancy is working with local partners to survey all of the Grenadines, identify threats and conservation strategies, and map priority sites in need of protection. Part of the plan includes developing and managing a system of marine protected areas. Photo credit: © Marjo Aho for The Nature Conservancy

Hybrid or re-engineered reefs, also called “artificial reefs,” were installed in Grenville Bay, Grenada using steel cages filled with stones and cement. The structures protect coastlines from strong wave action and reduce the impacts from climate change, such as severe erosion. Photo credit: © Tim Calver
