About

Green Antilles is a weblog dedicated to providing information about green topics in the Caribbean. It’s updated Monday to Friday with links and other snippets about the environment, nature, conservation, agriculture, energy, and so on. The blog’s title is taken from the title of a 1966 anthology of Caribbean writing.

Green Antilles was founded by Thérèse Yarde. Thérèse is a Barbadian. She holds a BSc (Eng) in Environmental Engineering from the University of Guelph, an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College and a PhD in Human Geography from the University of Edinburgh. She worked for several years as Senior Environmental Technical Officer with the Environmental Protection Department of the Government of Barbados.

The site is now run by Robin Ramdeen.

Tips, suggestions for content, event notices, offers to contribute, and general enquiries can be submitted to Thérèse at therese[at]greenantilles[dot]com.
