Promoting and enhancing the ecological and economic value of Anguilla’s marine parks: piloting the Little Bay Marine Park restoration


Brief Description:
The project will construct and deploy lobster casitas (artificial shelters) within the Little Bay Marine Park (LBMP), creating a “sanctuary” that will also provide critical habitat to other reef fish, sea turtle, and coral reef species. The project will diversify LBMP’s value through awareness raising on the importance of Anguilla’s nearshore ecosystems and providing alternative livelihood opportunities (eco-tourism) to fishers. This is a BEST 2 initiative project.
