‼️ Webinar Alert‼️-Ozone Layer Depletion and Skin Cancer 🌎☀️
The ozone layer forms a protective filter against harmful UV radiation from the sun. Depletion of this protective barrier therefore increases UV-related harm to humans and the environment. Skin damage including sunburn, premature ageing, and in severe cases skin cancer are all potential consequences.
Join us this Thursday as we shed light on the impacts of ozone layer depletion, as it relates specifically to skin cancer with the National Ozone Unit and Mrs. Sherma Mills Serette, Team Lead Educator, Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society.

‼️Webinar Alert‼️ - Making Polluters Pay

Too often environmental mismanagement and over-exploitation of natural resources have led to considerable environmental degradation throughout Trinidad and Tobago; from littering, to illegal quarrying, to poaching of protected species. This webinar will touch on how the law (both criminal and civil) presents mechanisms to address some of these issues. Emphasis will be placed on the financial aspect of environmental breaches including quantifying environmental damage, compensation for such damage and taking the profit out of such breaches.

Join our webinar this Thursday to learn more about how the legislative framework of Trinidad and Tobago can be used to make polluters pay with Mr. Andrew Dalip Jr. - Attorney at Law.

We have more exciting news to share!

**ERIC secures first Green Fund Project for Tobago**

On Wednesday, 8th of July 2020, the honourable Prime Minister, and Minister for Planning and Development Dr Keith Rowley signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the ERIC to implement the first Green Fund financed project in Tobago.

The 12-month project is titled: “Linking Tobago’s Reef Health to Livelihoods: Underwater Turtle Monitoring, Related Eco-Tourism Development, Capacity Building, Knowledge Sharing and Outreach”.

Tobago’s marine turtles play a significant role for the eco- and human systems in Tobago and are furthermore an important indicator for reef health.

We will collect underwater data on turtles to inform their management, develop eco- and science tourism products, and build capacity and awareness of stakeholders.

Our vision of this project is that healthy marine turtle populations in Tobago attract eco-tourism activities that financially support community livelihoods as an example of sustainable green and blue economy.

In line with Tobago’s Environmental Partnership, we will work closely with our community-based field technicians, the Division of Food Production, Forestry and Fisheries and The Division of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment.

The natural environment provides invaluable goods and services and holds great intrinsic value. Unfortunately, it is also at great risk of significant depletion due to natural and man-made hazards and has to be safeguarded in an effort to sustain all eco-systems from which all vital services are derived. By bringing awareness to the natural environment, coupled with informed intervention, together, through effective partnerships, we can aid in mending the damage done to our environment in the hope of restoring the services which nature provides.
As we celebrate World Environment Day amidst growing challenges, let it resonate within us that this is the “Time for Nature”. A time for nature to be protected through remediation, reforestation, conservation, and public education and awareness initiatives in partnership with YOU.
