Relying on local expertiseWorking with the St Barths environmental agency
To make sure that our efforts are a true long term investment, we are working with the local environmental agency, called Agence Territoriale de l’Environnement de Saint Barthélemy.
Local species only
Armed with a list of approved local tree and plant species given by this local agency, we are selecting trees that are endemic to our island and that will recreate landscapes as close as possible to natural.
Proven record of executing environnemental projectsWorking with local actors like Coral Restoration St Barth
Our main goal is to coordinate local efforts and global help from St Barths lovers. Our focus is on project management, with clear ownership and accountability.
Locals have already delivered ion environmental projects
Not only do we focus on getting local companies (gardeners, landscapers and architects) to implement our action plan, but also we make sure to rely on people who have successfully executed similar long-term projects. For instance, Didier Laplace of Coral Restoration St Barth, the very respected local who has for years lead the restoration of coral reefs around the island, is an active member of the association.
