The ocean is the "main player" in Caribbean tourism and this "fragile resource" must be protected.

That's the opinion of the Director of Sustainable Tourism for the 33-member Association of Caribbean States (ACS), Julio Orozco.

Mr Orozco is based in Trinidad and Tobago which is among the world's Small Island Developing States (SIDS), which depend on the sea for economic survival.

No doubt these countries are looking to next week's Ocean Conference at UN Headquarters, which seeks to galvanize action to improve ocean health for present and future generations.

Speaking from Las Cuevas Beach in Trinidad, Mr Orozco outlined the basics of sustainable tourism for Dianne Penn.
