SASAA Alums Active in Grenada's Marine Conservation Efforts!


Marine Biology…

Life Sciences with a specialization in Marine Biology…

Marine, Wildlife and Conservation Biology.

Over the years, the exact name may have evolved, but the focus has remained on training and inspiring a generation of environmentally-minded Caribbean people.

With the international community so focused on global Climate Change and its very real impacts, Grenada has been giving some attention to our natural environment. The only thing more exciting than knowing this, though, is seeing the number of SGU SAS Alumni forming a core part of the positive on-the-ground action from within the Government.

Perusing the offices of the Fisheries and Environment Divisions of the Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Forestry, Fisheries & the Environment, you will find nestled among the staff quite a few persons who can attribute their undergraduate degrees to the School of Arts & Sciences at St. George’s University.

Over on Melville Street in the town of St. George, you will find Carisha (Class of ’15); Christabelle (Class of ’12); Danielle (Class of ’09) and Olando (Class of ’08) working to promote better management of our marine resources.

Skipping across to the Ministerial Complex at the Botanical Gardens, Kerricia (Class of ’08), and Leyana (Class of ’14) focus their attention on developing methods of using our coastal ecosystems, like our coral reefs, to help the country cope with the effects we are already experiencing because of rapidly shifting climatic conditions.

They all believe that every action counts, and that we need to act now! We are proud to see them stand up and be counted among those working to make a difference. Keep up the amazing work!!!
