OUR PROJECTS & PROGRAMS
Collaborative & Innovative
We conduct research to support the work of our partners, whether in government or civil society. From our experiences as environmental/ecological researchers in the Caribbean, we know that are numerous knowledge gaps, and few personnel available to both execute research and and interpret the findings. With the support of our members and advisors working in academia and environmental consulting, we conduct research that either:
Identifies some baseline biological or environmental condition.
Models the likely impacts of a human-induced environmental change.
Improves our understanding on how to better manage or restore natural systems.
We are dedicated to fostering public interest and understanding of science, particularly involving natural systems. To achieve this goal, we commenced a youth-focused education program with the Petite Martinique Women's Organization, where children are taught about the ecological and cultural importance of birds and how to identify them by sight and sound. In the near future, we will expand this program to other taxonomic groups and demographics.
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to increase public interest in natural systems, through several education campaigns and initiatives. To meet this goal, we at Gaea Conservation:
Publish our bi-monthly "Wild Side of the Spice Isle", featuring a flora or fauna in Grenada.
Run school, church and camp workshops about Grenada's Wildlife (available upon request), often followed by a birding tour at a neighbouring mangrove ecosystem.
Collaborate with partners, such as the Grenada Green Group, to produce public service announcements on dissuading littering, focusing its negative effects on human health and the environment.
Contact us to learn more about our commitment to these causes.
We support the work of our Government partners as consultants. In most cases, we collect data on biological communities (birds, plants and aquatic macroinvertebrates) and environmental conditions, to guide management plans.
