World Moment: Grenada

GRENADA

Granada flagGranada 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!
