Recycle Rebuild / WildDominique / Project AWARE - Dominica

 

WildDominique is a non-profit organisation which is approved by the government of Dominica as an NGO, with a mission to support and promote sound conservation practices in Dominica through environmental education, community engagement, research, species preservation, and policy. The organization arouse from the need for a strong environmental education program in Dominica coupled with the effects of Hurricane Maria on our fauna and flora.  This decision has also come at a time where we as a people are striving to become a climate resilient country and we believe a conservation organisation like WildDominique will play a vital role in reaching our national goal. WildDominique will serve as an umbrella conservation organisation working with local, regional, and international groups to provide solutions for environmental issues across the island.  To better manage our organisation, we have subdivided it into 3 sections: living young, living wild, and living free.

Recycle Rebuild is a UK based Scottish Charitable Inc (SCIO) registered charity that empowers communities to recycle waste into affordable, high-quality materials and products, whilst providing an immediate source of income for those affected by natural disasters. We have been in Dominica since the start of April and are currently working on a pilot recycling centre sponsored by the Rotary Club of Portsmouth and actively seeking funds for the creation of a larger permanent recycling and product making centre in Portsmouth.

Project AWARE takes action to create both local and global change for the ocean and the communities who depend on it Project AWARE connects the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation with a vision to Return to a Clean, Healthy ocean They advance programs that:

1.      Address the greatest threats facing the ocean. Those threats must be grounded in sound science and

2.      Fulfill the interests and needs of our community with both fins on and fins off.
