“Based on a participatory process and with an ecosystem approach, the Seaflower Marine Protected Area (MPA) was created in 2005 thanks to the leadership of Coralina – the Corporation for the Sustainable Development of the Archipelago of San Andrés, Old Providence and Santa Catalina , a department of Colombia in the Caribbean – and the support of the local and national governments.”

A wonderful project and achievement was “presented the Countdown 2010 Biodiversity Award for the year 2010”. It must be the work of the 21st century, conscious management of the planet and a way forward where all of the environments will be managed with the same care.

Imagine the contrast of environments side by side, Coralina and the Deep Horizon spill, “the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry”.
