The museums of the Caribbean face a unique set of problems, due in large measure to their isolation and their extraordinarily rich and varied heritage, both of which pose a particular challenge to co-operative efforts. Yet, positive steps have been taken to link them more closely and to focus on their role in preserving the region’s natural environment. The author holds a Master’s degree in oceanography from the Université de Paris VI and a DEA (preliminary Ph.D. degree) in museology from the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle de Paris. He is a museologist in a private company, the Chalutier Victor Pleven (Victor Pleven’s Trawler), which has been converted into the Musée de la Grande Pêche, in Lorient, France.
