As tourist season opens, the Soufriere/Scotts Head Marine Reserve is ready to recruit wardens to safeguard the island’s natural resources in the south.

President of the Association for the Soufriere Scotts Head Marine Reserve, Heston Charles says the organisation also is interested in improving the lives of the area residents.

Charles says a meeting is planned for Friday, October 18th for all prospects.

“Presently we are ensuring that we have trained wardens so that we have people to maintain the reserved area. We want to encourage young men and women who are interested in marine life and want to get that experience to attend that meeting,” he detailed.

The meeting takes place at the St. Marks Cooperative Office in Scotts Head from 11am.

Charles spoke of a jetty for Scotts Head saying, “Work should begin sometime in November. The company is coming Dominica to begin the preliminary work.”

Yacht moorings will also be installed in Scotts Head “that will bring traffic into the community and generate income for the residents of Soufriere.
