In Mauritius, extraordinary efforts are being made to remove invasive species and conserve what remains of the country’s wildlife. In Samoa, where the marine environment is under pressure, a conservation project is encouraging better marine stewardship using traditional tribal social structures.In Portland, Jamaica, communities are taking steps to lessen their vulnerability by improving the way watersheds are managed.
