Work crews crush sea turtle eggs on Trinidad beach
9 July 2012 - Thousands of leatherback turtle eggs and hatchlings have been crushed by heavy machinery along a Trinidad beach widely regarded as the world's densest nesting area for the biggest of all living sea turtles, conservationists said Monday. Government work crews with bulldozers were redirecting the Grand Riviere, a shifting river that was threatening a hotel where tourists from around the globe watch the huge endangered turtles lay their eggs. But several conservationists who monitor turtle populations say the crews botched the job, digging up an unnecessarily large swath of the important nesting beach in the tiny coastal town on Trinidad's northern shore. Marc de Verteuil, of the Papa Bois Conservation organization, said the river had already eroded a lot of the dense nesting areas on the beach before the weekend, but the government work crews made a bad situation worse. De Verteuil and other conservationists said they could not confidently gauge how the loss of so many eggs and hatchlings could affect the region's leatherback population. Leatherbacks lay about 85 eggs at a time, but less than 1 per cent survive to adulthood. (more)

Trinidad and Tobago: A 'wall of shame' nags site of Americas summit
17 April 2009 - A newly finished brick wall mostly obscures from the view of leaders arriving at the Summit of the Americas a slum that embodies their biggest challenges: drug-related violence and an economic crisis that threatens to erase gains against poverty. The people of Beetham Estate, which flanks the main highway entering Port of Spain (the capital of Trinidad and Tobago) from the east, call it 'the wall of shame'. Beetham is home to some 5,000 people, about a tenth of them squatters. A block-wide slice of simple dwellings that runs most of a mile and is wedged between motorways, it is a place outsiders shun for the danger. Wars between rival gangs who peddle cocaine and marijuana claim about two young lives a day in this country of more than 1.4 million. It saw 157 murders in the first three-and-a-half months of this year, on the heels of 545 last year - the highest ever. (more)
