    Story

    In July 2017, 20 students, including myself will be travelling to Montserrat with Coral Cay Conservation to participate in an international community project called 'Project Montserrat'. Montserrat is a small Caribbean island which was devastated by the eruptions of the Soufriere hills which began in July 1995. The eruptions completely buried the south of the island, including the capital, Plymouth. Due to the extent of the damage half the island is now an exclusion zone.

    Whilst in Montserrat, we will carry out a number of tasks for Coral Cay. For example; we will conduct terrestrial surveys collecting data about the current state of island so that Coral Cay can then organise protection initiatives and tourist plans.We will also lead an education program at a local primary school, teaching the children about their island and how to best conserve it for their future. They will participate in fun activities which we hope will illustrate to them the importance of sustainable fishing etc. Also, we will be helping to secure future generations of turtles by creating an area where they can hatch safely. The trip will also include hikes in the jungle and to the exclusion zone to experience the true beauty of the island and to witness, first hand, the damage of the eruptions.

    This trip is very close to my heart and so any donations made would be hugely appreciated.
