Mero Village, Dominica

Dr. Les Behrends, our technical director, and I got back from Dominica two weeks ago…..the wastewater garden was nearly complete by the time we left. We are honorary citizens of the village of Mero now..everyone was so wonderful and most have so little to live on. One guy told Les that “He believed in hard […]

SALSA Contest winners announced!

We were delighted to have 5 restaurants and one individual, Tom Kale, enter our inaugural salsa contest. The restaurants made some awesome salsa and it was obvious that people are very partial to different salsa tastes. It nearly ended up a 6 way tie, but truly, we had a 3 way tie for first place […]

Thanks for a GREAT Beach Party!!

It’s not too easy pulling off an event after delaying it because of snow. It simply would not have been possible without the help of so many folks….esp Connie, Annette, and Angela! Without them, this party would not have happened! Then add Larry, John, Susan, Rebekah, Melissa, Lavonda, Emmy, Maria, Christine, Corinne, Nancy, Mary, and […]

Postponing the Beach Party was difficult….

But we now know it was the right thing to do. In Tennessee, 5 inches of snow followed by .3 inch of ice just shuts everything down! Our electricity didn’t return until Sunday night. I can’t thank our organizing committee enough….they are simply awesome! We have rescheduled the Beach Party for MARCH 5th….and it will […]

They even began to implement what they had learned […]

It’s a tribute to all of us working together to protect the water environments of the Caribbean….from our first sponsors TVIG, Carilec, Cox Wood Products, Lucelec, and Project […]

We are officially Looshan!

Caribbean SEA is now an official St. Lucian company! Our office is based at the Carilec office in Castries and we appreciate their partnership so very much. We needed a local base of operations so that we can work more closely with our island partners and funders. See you in St Lucia!

We all deserve Clean Water

After participating in Outdoor Chattanooga’s Outdoor Expo and going to the EcoExpo put on by Brewer Media, it is heartening to see such a diverse group of people who understand and are working to improve our environment. Look at the diversity of people involved in clean water…from our groups TenneSEA and Caribbean SEA where students […]

Welcome to Caribbean SEA!

Caribbean students from St. Lucia, Dominica, Jamaica, and Curacao have all been involved in actively protecting their fresh water resources and therefore, their coral reef habitats! We appreciate everyone who helps guide us and the kids….we can’t do it alone. If we all work together to keep our water clean, there is no doubt in […]
