When dreaming of "paradise" many of us imagine the Caribbean. However, this paradise is threatened, so the Nature Conservancy is taking critical steps toward a brighter future for both the environment and the region's economy.

Join Ocean First Divers on February 20th at 6:30pm to welcome Erin Allen, The Nature Conservancy's Director of Philanthropy for the Caribbean, as she discusses the past, present, and future of conservation in the Caribbean, and how your small actions can add up to a big impact.

The Nature Conservancy's has over one million members and staff who mobilize more than 550 scientists in 50 states and across 35 countries to design innovative ways to sustainably use, manage, and protect paradise. From supporting extensive ground operations across the Caribbean for marine and coastal conservation efforts, to working with companies on catalyzing reforms of their business practices (making them more sustainable) and engaging their customer bases, to the training and education of coral reef managers, The Nature Conservancy is working to defend paradise for ourselves and for future generations.

“The energy challenge and marine conservation challenge in the Caribbean go hand-in-hand: we can’t have a healthy economy without a healthy environment, nor a healthy environment without a healthy economy.” - Richard Branson, committed Caribbean conservation supporter.
