Mon, 04 Nov 2019 07:00:21 GMT Restoring Jamaica's lost coral reefs – photo essay

After a series of natural and manmade disasters in the 1980s and 1990s, Jamaica lost 85% of its coral reefs and fish catches hugely declined. Many scientists thought the reefs had been permanently lost but today the corals and tropical fish are slowly reappearing, thanks to the work of local ‘gardeners’Everton Simpson squints at the Caribbean from his motorboat, scanning the dazzling bands of colour for hints of what lies beneath. Emerald green indicates sandy bottoms. Sapphire blue lies above seagrass meadows. And deep indigo marks coral reefs. That is where he is heading. He steers the boat to an unmarked spot he knows as the “coral nursery”. Simpson started working as a “coral gardener” two years ago as part of grassroots efforts to bring Jamaica’s coral reefs back from the brink.On the ocean floor, small coral fragments dangle from suspended ropes. Simpson and other divers tend to this underwater nursery as gardeners look after a flower bed, painstakingly plucking off snails and fireworms that feast on immature coral. When each stub grows to about the size of a human hand, Simpson collects them in his crate to individually transplant on to a reef. Even fast-growing coral species add just a few inches a year.Everton Simpson untangles lines of staghorn coral at a nursery inside the White River fish sanctuary. The coral fragments dangle from ropes, like socks hung on a laundry line.Simpson grabs a handful of staghorn harvested fro

Mon, 04 Nov 2019 04:45:19 +0000 Voices in the land

My name is Ivan Laughlin and, although I am Trini to the bone, I am Caribbean in the marrow. I’m a war baby, born 15 January 1942. Muhammad Ali is the 17th. When they were sprinkling (greatness) they passed me and touched him first. As a five-year-old, I used to walk from Long Circular Road to the Savannah, take the tram to City Gate, pick up two packs of nuts and go back. Or take the bus down Long Circular Road to Cipriani Blvd, where Miss Eccles’ school was, and go back by bus – all by myself, at age five. My parents split up when I was about seven. My mum took us to live with my grandmother, Evelyn Anderson, on the Maracas Estate. The move from the urban to the rural had a striking impact on me. The Abbey School principal, Fr Isle de France, taught us how to draw maps as rectangles. Chupara Point is the most northerly point of Trinidad. You trace it to Galeota, then down to Galera – you frame Trinidad and you suddenly understand where Icacos was, San Fernando and so on. He did the same thing with Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana. All of a sudden, I’m seeing the Demerara and Essequibo Rivers, Suriname, Brazil, Venezuela. I learned the Cockpit Country in Jama
