Amidst sparkling crystal waters in the Eastern Caribbean, a string of islands boasts sugar-sand beaches and brightly colored coral reefs.

Over half the population here lives within a mile from the coastline. We work in Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent & the Grenadines—islands striving to develop sustainably in the face of climate change. The Nature Conservancy works to strengthen the natural infrastructure and ecosystems that sustain communities and protect against climate-related threats.
