Granada is a large island north of Trinidad. The population is just over 100,000. In 2004 and 2005, hurricanes devastated the island. While fewer than 40 people were killed, 90% of the nations buildings were destroyed, and the agriculture and tourism sectors were virtually annihilated. They have been rebuilt, but the nation is deeply in debt as a result.
The ocean life also required support after the hurricanes and was assisted in a very cool way. Artist Jason de Caires Taylor created an underwater sculpture garden to help support the reef and encourage growth and habitation of marine life. Here’s a very cool photo of some of his work in Grenada!
