Print Version | Petition to Demand Democracy over Destruction

Cayman Islands community: vocalize that Environmental Impact Assessments should be performed in relation to major capital projects that will affect the health of our fragile coastal lagoon ecosystems which must be conserved -- in particular, the Central Mangrove Wetlands.

Developments that affect these ecosystems would gravely impact us, as we rely on healthy mangroves, seagrasses, and wetlands for food security, weather regulation, supporting our economy, storm protection, biodiversity, and leisure -- these are only a few of the many benefits of these resources that form parts of our culture and support our collective quality of life when safeguarded.


At present, there are government proposals to construct a highway, the East-West Arterial extension through the nationally important Central Mangrove Wetlands, and to extend the Owen Roberts International Airport into the North Sound lagoon-- both would negatively impact the health of these eco-systems, which rely on a healthy North Sound for tourism, food security, and leisure; components that form part of our culture and which benefit our collective quality of life.


→ Amplify Cayman call on those who value Cayman to DEMAND that Parliament respect our Acts and Constitution to conduct and enforce Environmental Impact Assessments when our coastal environments are subject to development.
