In honour of World Nature Conservation Day, Coyaba Beach Resort in Grenada made a generous donation of 25 fruit trees and other vegetation to The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) Eastern Caribbean Program to benefit communities in the Grenville Bay area.

Members of TNC’s Eastern Caribbean team were invited to join guests at a planting event at the resort to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change on island communities and how natural resources are key for building coastal resilience.

Willan Mark, who led the tree-planting initiative on behalf of the resort, says they aim to make tree donations and planting events an annual occurrence. TNC has a goal of planting one billion trees across the planet to slow the connected crises of climate change and biodiversity loss.

Congratulations to all involved as “The Spice Island” makes solid moves towards a greener future!
