Peat Fires Around the World


For those who have been reading this blog regularly, you may know about the dangers that fires pose to the Negril Great Morass. NEPT has been working with donors like the Environmental Foundation of Jamaica and the GEF’s Small Grants Programme, as well as Negril-area stakeholders to fight these fires and bring the Negril Great Morass back to health.

A few days ago, we found a story in the New York Times that parallels the struggles that we’ve been having in Jamaica, and wanted to share it with all our readers. Hopefully we can reverse things in the Negril Great Morass before the situation gets out of hand.
