We headed to Andros last week to check up on previous projects and think about future directions. I was excited to see how well our first two small creek restoration projects looked. When you restore flow to the creeks through a narrow channel, the current is so concentrated that it apparently keeps mangroves from again encroaching. This maintains habitat for dozens and dozens of juvenile snapper, and feeding areas for motile fishes such as bonefish and jacks. Here is some more information on previous Abaco and Andros restoration projects.
