Barbuda is the last essentially pristine island left in the Caribbean other than uninhabited rocks.
Barbuda is too dry for agriculture, so the people are master fishers who have lived from the sea for hundreds of years, and own their entire island in common, the only place in the Caribbean where this is the case.
This has allowed them to avoid the unsustainable development that has wrecked coral reefs, seagrasses, mangroves, and beaches on the nearby island of Antigua, and throughout the Caribbean.
For more information on the impacts these developments would have on Barbuda’s fisheries and natural resources, please see:
