Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) Marine Area Hope Spot is highly regarded by many as one of the most beautiful, pristine, world known destinations for marine ecotourism- a true jewel of the Caribbean. Untouched- lush flora and fauna. Rich marine life. Picturesque scenery. A chain of 32 cays and islands. Turquoise waters. Think Pirates of the Caribbean. Abundant reef-life, normally found at 80 ft. in most dive destinations around the globe, flourishes here at depths of only 25 ft. with an extraordinary variety of critters and tropical reef fish, including marine turtles. About 20 or so species of whales and dolphins can be found in the waters of St. Vincent and the Grenadines year round. Controversially, the islands have had a long history of humpback whaling that started in 1875 as a primarily commercial activity for the indigenous peoples. The establishment of a Marine Mammal Protected Area within the SVG Hope Spot and an economically viable solution for smart mariculture in lieu of whaling is now being developed. This will allow us to collect data, monitor and protect the populations of dolphins, whales and other species under IUCN’s Endangered status. Our goal is to restore marine life for present and future generations to enjoy and treasure the natural beauty of the ocean. - Written by the proposing organization/individual
