For the last episode in our mini-series exploring some of the ocean-related issues facing Barbados, Conor Lennon went to one of the sea turtle nesting grounds on the southwest of the island.
He met members of the Barbados Sea Turtle Project, which has been successful in restoring the turtle population on the island, despite a host of challenges, including the climate crisis.
This series was produced in the run-up to the 2022 UN Conference, convened to bring fresh impetus to science-based solutions, and start a new chapter of global ocean action. On this website, you will find a host of videos and text stories, as well as more episodes of The Lid Is On, on ocean-related subjects.
