The Ministry of Works and Transport (MOWT), Coastal Protection Unit (CPU), has launched the national coastal monitoring initiative, #CoastalWatchTT. The initiative calls members of Trinidad and Tobago’s coastal communities and stakeholders including beachgoers, environmental activists, landowners and residents, hoteliers and tour operators as well as the general public to make shoreline management and preservation a priority by joining in the effort to monitor the nation’s coasts.

The general public may monitor coastal areas that are susceptible to coastal hazards such as fallen trees, land slippage, cliff failure, retreating shorelines, threats to coastal infrastructure and assets, and coastal erosion and ­flooding, to become a #CoastalWatchTT Reporter via either:

* Posting photo and/or video content on social media networks using the hashtag #CoastalWatchTT
* Submitting email reports to CoastalWatchTT@mowt.gov.tt
* Submitting telephone reports to the CPU at (868) 623-6797.
