SEE Life, Sea SKN
A national marine environment based awareness campaign to conserve biodiversity in St.Kitts and Nevis
The primary problem identified is the lack of national level awareness programs geared towards educating persons in St.Kitts about conserving biodiversity within the marine and terrestrial spheres. Locally, persons have been led to believe that they should fear the ocean and shy away from lucrative marine-based recreational activities. However, this national awareness campaign will be focused on creating a change in the attitude and perspective of persons toward the sea. This campaign will seek to foster a greater appreciation for the marine life and encourage underwater adventures by exploring the ocean. #divein
SEA LIFE Books
Media and creative works highlight Pacific Ocean based marine species NOT those found in the Atlantic Ocean or Caribbean Sea. Therefore, See Life Sea SKN will create an illustrative children’s marine awareness book using species that can be found within the proposed SKN Marine Management Area. Key themes of the book series will be based on real-life threats to the seascape (eg Lionfish invasion, Pollution and Unregulated fishing) while emphasizing the need for conservation of endangered and vulnerable marine creatures.
