In 2019, GAEA began a project funded by Environment and Climate Change Canada, named "Restoring climate refuges for migratory birds and building community engagement with nature". The project aims to establish reference conditions for mangrove forests in Grenada, which can then be used to improve our current mangrove restoration protocol and increase survival and success rates.
The research involves surveying the vegetation, environmental conditions, and biological communities (birds, plants, zooplankton and fish) at four sites on the island, and is carried out by a team of researchers and field assistants from SGU and abroad. Our own Project Administrator, Zoya Buckmire, is working along with this project to conduct the thesis research for her Master's degree.
