Project Description: The Haiti Ocean Project was initiated five years ago for the purpose of protecting the vulnerable marine mammals and marine life that are valuable to Haiti's marine environment and sustainable tourism development. We are developing a program of marine education, marine mammal research and ecotourism in Grand Goave, a small fishing village in Haiti. Our project is a collaboration between the youth of two countries, Haiti and the United States. The Haiti Ocean Project not only preserves and renews the quality of our oceans and its inhabitants; we are also reviving and nourishing the economy of a struggling nation.
