Defend Paradise: At last something is being done

2012 was a terrible year for wildlife in the Cayman Islands; the lionfish invasion continued, the Turtle Farm got a lot of bad press, our beloved stingrays were being stolen from the sandbar, the grouper spawning sites came under increasing pressure and the proposal to expand marine parks had many objectors.
