Over the weekend, the Placencia Tour Guide Association headed a community effort to save two homes in Monkey River in the Toledo District.
“Placencia Tour Guide Association members, local Tour Operators and concerned citizens from Placencia and Monkey River Villages headed to Monkey River this weekend to begin construction on a seawall to save two homes from rising sea levels caused by climate change,” said the Placencia Tour Guide Association (PTGA) in a social media post.
The PTGA explained that the southern village, which was once a thriving town, has lost an entire neighborhood due to sea level rise over the past 20 years.
“Transportation and organization from Placencia was organized by PTGA member Eworth Garbutt and his team at Eworth’s Fishing Adventures,” the PTGA said.
The association thanked the guides and all the other persons who helped with what it called ‘this important community cause’.
The PTGA said that the work is not yet done and said they are open to more assistance.
“More work is needed so please follow the Placencia Tour Guide Association page for updates on chances to volunteer (you do not have to be a guide), donations for fuel costs for transportation of volunteers, sand and rock to the construction site are also appreciated,” said the Placencia Tour Guide Association.
