Reforestation efforts and Coralita management can reinforce one another, and we should have a Coralita-free buffer below Signal Hill. All attendees at the meeting organised by Elizabeth and me and facilitated by CNSI agreed on these matters. The 30th of October, we had the pleasure to discuss with the deputy government commissioner, Stenapa and LVV our insights into Coralita so far and give short and long term recommendations for management.

It's already been a month since Elizabeth and I were on Saba to participate in one of our favourite events of the year: Sea & Learn! Pictures of our activities were distributed via Facebook, so have a look at us crafting Elephant ear umbrella's. We also had the chance to meet with the Governor, Island Council and SCF, to relay our recommendations for Coralita management on Saba. Read up on this here, and check out the maps with Sabans' favourite areas!
