Description

In our third episode looking at ocean-related issues facing the eastern Caribbean island nation of Barbados, released in the run-up to the UN Oceans Conference, we turn to the issue of the coral reef.


Barbados’s reef has been declining for decades, hit by decades of pollution and the climate crisis. CORALL, a volunteer organization supported by the UN, is showing that it is possible to bring life back to the reef, by carefully growing coral in nurseries off the coast.


Conor Lennon from UN News went to visit the nurseries, to find out if it will be possible to bring the reef back to its former glory.
