Hurricane Earl, tropical storms Fiona and Otto: the sheer force of nature once again reminded us of the vulnerability of our island. In spite of these major climactic events, our natural resources remain among our best allies.
The barrier reef and the mangroves help protect the coastline from the effects of large swells.
The salt ponds serve as natural reservoirs for the collection of rainwater, and help limit flooding. Unfortunately, these resources are often in such a bad state and suffering from pollution that they can no longer do their jobs.
Keeping these natural zones in good health can contribute to limit the impact of these weather phemonena, both now and in the future.
This is one of the most important missions for the staff of the Réserve Naturelle and its partners.

We are counting on your help as well.
