Environment: News from the Saint-Martin Nature Reserve


As part of several actions carried out by the Saint-Martin Nature Reserve for the International Year of the Reef (IYOR), 2 “Reef Check” monitoring stations were diagnosed on Monday, September 17.

Reserve staff, Théo currently on probation and Guillaume already volunteering to monitor the nesting season for sea turtles participated in the creation of this first outing, the last two Reef Check stations having been investigated in the process.

The “Reef Check” is a standardized follow-up replicated on a very large number of stations worldwide, thanks to the support of volunteers. It makes it possible to follow the evolution of coral communities by focusing on fish, fixed flora and fauna, as well as on crustaceans and molluscs.

This monitoring is carried out annually and is the subject of reports available online on the reserve's website.

This 2018 edition is part of the IYOR actions supported by IFRECOR, which helps finance the outing as well as the equipment lost during the passage of Irma.

Congratulations to the whole team, motivated more than ever to complete this post-Irma +1 year follow-up
