The Mt. Hartman Estate is the target for tourism development activities given its physical setting (location, topography, climatology
etc) and natural scenic beauty. The Grenada Dove National Park is also located within the Estate and hence presents possible resource
use conflicts if the two objectives of conservation and socio-economic development are not integrated into a coherent strategy.
A strategy that combines conservation objectives with a resort development project was designed for the area. All areas where
Grenada Dove populations have been observed within the dove sanctuary will be protected within the primary reserve. These areas
also represent the areas of mature dry scrub habitat of high quality as compared to other areas with more recent disturbance regimes.
Migratory corridors will be developed to link the parcels of land that contain the mature dry scrub forest so that a contiguous dove
sanctuary will be established. Degraded areas within the primary reserve, such as those where dumping of garbage, burning of
charcoal and removal of top soil has occurred,
