The Nature Conservancy, based in Arlington, Va., has done some pretty amazing work over the years. Current and past initiatives have covered subjects as diverse as climate change, rainforest preservation, community development, and the protection of migratory birds. The group explains their successes by saying, “Some groups specialize in policy, others in landscape conservation. Only the Conservancy is positioned to do both. That’s how we can expand our best projects to scales where they make a difference.”

And now, the Conservancy has set its sights on the coral reefs of Cuba. In their new video above, they state that Cuba’s years of political isolation (during the Cold War era) have helped ensure that the reefs surrounding the island are some of the healthiest in the Caribbean region. And the Conservancy are determined to keep it that way!

Following on from their groundbreaking 2012 research trip to the coral reefs of the Jardines de la Reina National Park, the Conservancy is now hoping to build on this work and ultimately ”help regenerate marine life across the Caribbean.”

Listen to Dr. Philip A. Kramer, director of the Conservancy’s Caribbean Program, above, as he outlines the group’s goals and objectives for protecting the precious reefs. And for more information on how to help the Conservancy, click here.

Snorkeled in a cove at Manual Antonio 10 years ago and it was magnificent! Beautiful coral and tropical fish everywhere. Went there last year and it was all GONE! So, so sad :(
