Montserrat:
Montserrat was once an affluent Caribbean island heavily dependent on tourism, until two volcanic eruptions destroyed the airport and capital. The government is in the midst of rebuilding and is working on development plans to bring back tourism. Our group was asked to survey the reefs and jungles to ensure that the management plans implemented will not harm any of the natural areas of the island. Join us as you collect valuable information to impact sustainable development.

Highlights

Marine volunteers joining CCC for at least 3 weeks will get the opportunity to join in on surveying areas that have not been researched since before the first volcano eruption.

Terrestrial volunteers will get the opportunity to survey the beautiful Centre Hills and may even catch site of the extremely rare (critically endangered) Montserrat Oriole or Mountain Chicken.
