COVID-19 has certainly disrupted the lives of many around the world, but just as we have adapted to this new normal, so has wildlife. We often hear stories of animals returning to previously-abandoned habitats or exploring new spaces that they once avoided due to human presence. But to what extent?...

We started off the new year right, with mangroves and birding! We visited all our previous restoration sites to document their progress, and conducted a couple CWC counts while we were at it... guess you could call that 'two birds with one photo'!

This Saturday, October 19th, is Global Big Day! Last year, people all over the world counted and reported over 6,300 species of birds... that's almost 2/3 of all the species we have on Earth! Join the efforts again this year by going birding, whether at a nearby IBA (important birding area) or in yo...

Today's Creature Features are Whales & Sharks!

Though very biologically different, one being a mammal and the other a fish, whales and sharks share several features: both are large, ocean-dwelling, charismatic megafauna, and both have been hunted to near-extinction by humans. Whales are incredibly im...

Today's Creature Features are Birds & Bees!

Both these taxa are known for being pollinators, but they are also so much more. Birds also spread seeds, help control insect populations, and provide a food source for other animals; whereas bees are considered keystone species because pollination provides...

Today's Creature Features are Sea Turtles & Coral Reefs!

Turtles are some of the oldest organisms on Earth, as are coral reefs, and both have survived extinction events in the past. Thus, it's a testament to the severity of our current extinction event that all 6 turtle species found in the Caribbean...

Today's Creature Features are Plants & Insects!

These two taxa have existed in harmony (or in a constant battle of wills) since life on earth began. Plants produce the oxygen we all need to survive, and insects are the single most abundant species group on Earth (80% of all known species!). Both prov...

Today is Earth Day! But what does that mean? The #EarthDay movement began almost 50 years ago with a simple goal: to get more people aware of and engaged on environmental issues. This year's theme "Protect Our Species" is both critical and timely, as human actions (habitat destruction, exploitation,...

Our final count is in!

Yesterday, in just 2 hours and along a stretch of beach/mangrove only 1.3 km long, we collected about 2,300 lbs (two thousand three hundred pounds) of garbage. We were very ambitious in planning this cleanup, and aimed to clean the entire Upper St. Andrew's bay all the way up t...

For World Environment Day and World Oceans Day in June this year, we hosted two information fairs in Grenville and St. George's. The theme for both observances was "Beat Plastic Pollution", so of course we provided materials on plastic pollution and advocated for smarter consumer behaviour. I'm also...
