Reclaiming Our Beaches: Coping with Sargassum

A campaign designed by UWI Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) to provide helpful information for everyone who is being impacted by sargassum in the Eastern Caribbean. CERMES has compiled a selection of useful management guides on the ‘Reclaiming our Beaches’ website to cater to the needs and interests of a range of stakeholders, from fisherfolk and tourism operators to coastal dwellers, sargassum researchers and managers. Be inspired by stories of sargassum innovators who have managed to convert this crisis into opportunity. Need answers to burning questions?

The Sargassum podcast

A podcast hosted by marine educators and scientists with a wide range of expertise in sargassum and coastal communities. These episodes are based on interviews of a variety of stakeholders such as scientists, entrepreneurs, resource managers, community leaders, government officials, artists, fishermen, people working in the tourism sector, etc., about how they experience sargassum, a floating algae that has caused severe problems when beaching in the wider Caribbean and West Africa. Each interviewee will share their solutions or new knowledge concerning how they deal with sargassum. This podcast allows for a knowledge exchange between experts and local communities, also enabling communication between different local communities. We hope this can become a platform that potentiates the exchange of ideas across regions, catalysing local solutions to this international problem.
