What’s ten miles long, one mile wide, and according to one long-time diver and conservationist perfect as-is?
Peter Milburn has been diving Cayman’s waters for decades and says it’s high time Little Cayman and its pristine waters are given even more protections.
He told Cayman 27 he’d like to see the island designated a world heritage site, free from the sort of massive developments that have sprung up on Grand Cayman in recent decades.
“Leave it alone and protect it for future generations. There’s no sense in going over there and putting up a new Ritz-Carlton or Hyatt and all this sort of stuff and destroy it, leave something there that can be appreciated by future generations,” said Mr. Milburn.
Mr. Milburn said the whole island should be a no-take zone, and Little Cayman’s conch, lobster, and other marine life could potentially be used to supplement Grand Cayman’s stocks.
