Climate change adaptation

Island nations are on the front lines of global climate change. Heavy rainfall and rising sea levels are eroding shorelines and causing flooding. Warming and increasingly acidic oceans are damaging coral reefs that support fisheries and attract tourists. Some island communities are already moving or making plans to relocate. We help small island nations become more resilient to climate change by developing with them mitigation and adaptation strategies for a bright future.

Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are often called the rain forests of the sea. They are one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world and provide many key ecosystem services, including food, coastal protection, and tourism revenue. Elemental Solutions specializes in coral reef monitoring, protection and restoration.

Public Speaking

Get inspired to take action to protect our oceans and make a difference in our world by listening to Dr Catherine Jadot talking about the protection of the ocean and the steps everyone can implement in their day-to-day life to make a real difference.

Living shoreline

ES Caribbean teamed up with the Reef Ball Foundation to offer their new products – the Eco-Rap modules protecting the shoreline from wave energy. These living shoreline are an absolute necessity to protect shorelines from erosion. All the modules are custom made to ensure the highest level of protection and efficiency.

Mangrove restoration

Mangrove restoration is an essential step in the campaign to protect and rehabilitate near-shore tropical habitats. We work with a wide range of afforestation techniques, from direct planting to leading edge technology like the mangrove planters from Mangrove Solutions, which specially engineered for challenging environments, where classical planting methods fail.

Environmental Monitoring

Elemental Solutions excels in all phases of monitoring for the marine environment, from baseline assessment, gap analysis and complex long-term monitoring studies. We can help you design a monitoring plan, train your staff in proper monitoring technique and tools, or even conduct monitoring for your organization, depending on your specific needs.

The A Team

Dr Catherine Jadot - coral restoration in the Caribbean

Dr Cath

Environmental Consultant

My passion for the oceans started just after my first dive, when I was 8.5 years old. Yes, that’s a long time ago! Scientist, entrepreneur, endurance athlete and wife, I race in Ironman triathlons when I’m not underwater.

I have worked for various universities and agencies in Belgium, France, the Azores, Dubai, Trinidad, the Cayman Islands, Bonaire, the Bahamas, Madagascar and the Turks and Caicos Islands. I also have authored and co-authored numerous scientific papers and technical reports.

Manager / Logistics

I co-founded Elemental Solutions in 2010 to push back against the ever-increasing pressure on the environment. I have strong project management oversight in building out billion dollar infrastructures and hold various certifications. Our team recently finished the largest Reef Ball reef in the Bahamas, deploying over 300 units. Our construction techniques now focus directly on the environment, always trying to do it better, safer and healthier.

My passion for the ocean began when I was 4 years old and it has grown ever since! I’ve studied great white sharks in South Africa, dolphins in Greece, and marine ecosystems in the Caribbean. I’m a GIS* ninja and    aim to use my skills in marine conservation anywhere I can.
