Initiatives to protect underwater ‘world

Date: 1/12/2007

The Cayman Islands is leading the way in sustainable initiatives to ensure its famous coral reefs and clear waters remain pristine for generations to come. Steve Broadbelt of Ocean Frontiers proposed a five-year plan to turn Cayman’s scuba diving industry carbon neutral. The Islands would be the first country in the region to achieve this. Cayman’s dive operators plan to use Carbon Offsets, switch its dive boats to run on Biofuels, and establish a local Carbon Offset Fund to support improved recycling programmes, mangrove replanting and more. A Cayman Diving Lodge, planning to open in December 2008, will be the first luxury ecotourism resort in Grand Cayman to be a Green Certified Resort.
