Grenadians urged to highlight eco-system changes

If you are a resident of Grenada and have observed changes over the past 10 years to an eco-system in your country, then explaining what may have led to this change in a short video can be rewarding.  

The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) is working with the Government of Grenada to execute a National Ecosystem Assessment of the tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique.   

As part of this assessment, CANARI has launched the cell phone video competition, “Ecosystems of Grenada – past, present and future”.  

Through this competition, residents of Grenada can share their experiences on changes they’ve observed in the country’s ecosystems. 

The video can be two minutes long and explain how one eco-system (e.g. river, waterfall, forest, beach, lake, mangrove swamp, marsh, estuary, coral reef, seagrass bed, mountain, savannah or spring) has changed over the past ten years, how the ecosystem (plants and/or animals and physical environment) are likely to change over the next ten years and what factors are causing these changes. 

More information on this initiative can be found on CANARI’s website.
