Both Llewelyn and Jaedon have done years of marine conservation work on the Pedro Bank, site of Jamaica’s largest and most lucrative reef fishery. They have been integral in the formation of the South West Cay Special Fisheries Conservation Area, Jamaica’s first offshore Marine Protected Area (MPA), located on the Pedro Bank. Through their work they have seen the beauty and resilience of the Pedro Bank and have gone to great lengths to make it possible for others to share in the adventures that they have experienced. Discover Pedro is a conservation tour that is dear to the heart of YEC Ltd. and involves us hosting groups that assist in the scientific monitoring of seabirds, seaturtles, organisms in the MPA and economically significant species in select areas of the Bank. Other activities include SCUBA diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, camping and experiencing mouthwatering local meals prepared by residents of the cays.This activity contributes significantly to the conservation efforts on the Pedro Cays through the collection and provision of vital data. Additionally, funds paid to cover accommodation on the cays and to use the MPA also go back into the management of conservation activities there.
S.E.A.-Schools Environmental Awareness
YEC Ltd personnel have many years of experience administering environmental concepts to students, communities, lawmen and conservation groups. Our broad knowledge, training and range of work with the various groups mentioned serves us well when handling the sections of the secondary school’s syllabi that relate to ecology, pollution, sustainable use of the environment and methods of conservation. Indeed, we have been taking secondary schools on ecology field trips and teaching these concepts since 2005. We realize the need for students to get into the environment to witness the concepts they are being taught and to do the exercises they are required to (School Based Assessments – SBAs) in a habitat that they are required to learn about and will be seeing in a very different way by the time we are done.
