ORANJESTAD- The execution of a new project to protect the island of St. Eustatius against the effects of erosion has been initiated. 

The aim of this specific project is to protect several spots along the West coast of St. Eustatius from wave and rainfall erosion. This is done by stacking small and big boulders in a strategic way. Earlier efforts were, among others, the stabilization of The Rock. 


The new project is being executed at the former Godet Plantation where we use the same strategy to protect the Godet burial ground in which is also located at the West coast of St. Eustatius.
