La Réserve naturelle de Saint-Martin est une aire marine protégée de 30km2 située au nord-est de l’île de Saint-Martin. Créé en 1998, cet espace préserve les cinq principaux écosystèmes de l’île : récifs coralliens, mangroves, herbiers de phanérogames, étangs et forêt sèche littorale. La Réserve gère également les 14 étangs du Conservatoire du littoral et ses 11 km de rivages terrestres naturels.

Consultation and participation at Galion

The dismantling of the ruins of the old hotel at Galion is complete.

The demolition of various building began on September 5 and was completed by the end of the month. Initial restoration of this magnificent site is planned by the Conservatoire du Littoral, which plans to consult the population before deciding on the details for the ultimate project here. A first meeting was held with the French Quarter council, and it was decided to set up a small think tank. At the same time, in consultation with the school board, a project has been set up with two French Quarter classes, where the students will participate and make their own suggestions for projects. Julie Walker, representative of the Conservatoire in Saint Martin, met with the two teachers to prepare the project for the students in September 2016. The classes, one in elementary school, the other in middle school, will work on the project in the first months of the school year. The students will learn about the various species that exist on the site, deepen their understanding of the ecosystem, and think about what they would like to see there: the planting of vegetation, for sure, as well as a parking lot for vehicles, and maybe informational signage for the public at large.
