Stay Involved

* 1)  Write  the Jamaican Government, expressing your appreciation of the wise decision to NOT build a transshipment port on the Goat Islands in the Portland Bight Protected Area. A paper letter counts for more than an e-mail, but either is noted. You can word your letter any way you like, but we suggest you ask for full public disclosure of the details of the alternative port and logistics hub location, with comprehensive public consultation. You could also mention that you believe the Government should move forward with the complete restoration of the islands and renew the application to have the PBPA declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
