An American In Saint Martin

At the request of the Tourist Office, the Réserve Naturelle hosted an American journalist who wanted to discover Saint Martin beyond the beaches and off the beaten track, in order to better write about the undeveloped side of Saint-Martin, its salt ponds, its mangroves, and its rich bird life. At the Réserve office, she enjoyed a presentation led by the staff on the management and conservation of biodiversity. Then to get a real-life look at these topics, she went with the staff to visit the Baie de l’Embouchure, where she was able to see how easy it is to observe birds from the shore, and also understand the efforts put forth by the Réserve to restore the natural zones damaged by hurricane Irma, especially the creation of the mangrove plant nursery. She returned to the United States satisfied with her visit and surprised that these natural assets are rarely promoted in the press.
