The Réserve Naturelle’s managing body (AGRNSM) is calling all vessel operators (captains/skippers) utilizing the Réserve Naturelle commercially or privately to answer an online survey to improve the mooring buoys field for 2024/2025.

mooringbuoys14052024As part of the ReCorEA project*, the non-governmental organization responsible for managing the Réserve Naturelle Nationale de Saint-Martin (the Association de Gestion de la Réserve Naturelle de Saint-Martin, or AGRNSM) is evaluating the uses, needs, and problems faced by the visitors, particularly concerning current use of mooring fields to improve them for 2024/2025. The survey ends on May 22, 2024.

*Mitigation of anthropogenic pressures faced by coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangroves. With the financial support of the French Biodiversity Agency (OFB), the AGRNSM, France’s Tourism Development Agency (ATOUT France), and the Veolia Foundation.

Strengthening the protection of ecosystems and welcoming the public
Saint-Martin’s National Nature Reserve is home to exceptional natural sites and threatened biodiversity. Its first role is to preserve them for future generations. The reserve also allows for the reception of recreational visitors to enjoy and discover the protected area safely and sustainably. Though some sites, including the islands of Pinel and Tintamarre, are already equipped with mooring buoys, the existing gap between the real users’ needs and their current use threatens to further negatively impact the reserve’s biodiversity. T
A plan defined in collaboration with users
The AGRNSM would like to improve the reserve’s mooring buoy fields in collaboration with the users, namely commercial and private vessel operators utilizing the current mooring buoy field. To do so, stakeholder engagement is needed. Questions for participants include: Are there enough buoys? Are they well-located? Are they easy to use? A quick and easy anonymous survey (an estimated 10 to 15-minute commitment) is available online, permitting users to participate easily. For the moment, all potential solutions are being studied. The responses to the survey will serve as a working basis for the development of technical solutions adapted to the real needs of users and the protection of the environment.
