Over the past few months, I have been sharing with you the story of the Barbuda Ocean Initiative. When it comes down to it, the entire project is about people – preserving livelihoods and culture by sustainably managing ocean resources. It’s about how within reach that is, not just for Barbuda, but for other locations as well.
This is a story of one island’s commitment to finding solutions. It’s a story better told by seeing the passionate and joyous faces of the fishermen, government leaders, concerned citizens, and children.
So, please take a look at this first short video for the project, directed and filmed by Daryn DeLuco. This will certainly help you to understand why the Waitt Institute and I have fallen in love with this island and community.
I hope you enjoy the soundtrack as much as I do, provided by the steel drum band of the Holy Trinity Primary School under the direction of Mr. Evertt Thomas.
