SUSGREN To Continue Marine Protected Areas Program

The Sustainable Grenadines Incorporated (SUSGREN) is preparing to continue work on its program for Marine Protected Areas (MPA’s) throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The Grenadines Network of Marine Protected Areas was established by SUSGREN in 2011 to bring together stakeholders from Marine Protected areas in Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The stakeholders held a meeting in Carraicou in August 2013 and one of the decisions taken was to hold an exchange visit on the Grenadines Island of Mustique to continue their ongoing work.

Director of the Sustainable Grenadines Incorporated (SUSGREN) Martin Barriteau tells NBC News that they are currently preparing to hold a workshop on the Grenadines island of Mustique during the month of June to follow up on the work which has been done thus far.

Mr. Barriteau said thus far they have been receiving strong support for the work they have been doing in Marine Protected areas and they are continuing to work with the relevant stakeholders to strengthen this work.
