To confront anthropogenic impacts, Negril’s coastal ecosystems must be restored and beforehand, water quality monitoring needs to be undertaken. Assessing water quality in Negril can be divided into three data collection stages. In a first step, pictures taken from the water and shore of Negril's coast, river and Morass canals will help identify impacting elements and screen for water sampling points. In a second step, water quality monitoring will determine areas in need of further sampling, as well as restoration priorities and possibilities. In a final step, if required, participants will gather water samples from specified GPS points, in order to perform more sophisticated water quality tests, such as PCR for microbial source tracking. Ongoing global citizen science projects apply to Negril's waters and complement the data from this project You can access them from links below
