Recognized as one of the world’s most successful dolphin breeding
programs, the Dolphin Discovery Miracle program has grown over the
years, thanks to the passion and dedication of an entire team providing
day-to-day care for marine mammals.
The 2013 census of the North Sound stingray population was just
completed last month and the news is generally good. This animal has
appeared in every single media advertisement, printed and electronic,
every documentary or tourist guide ever done about the Cayman Islands
for the last thirty years, and is now even on the new $50 note.
Few companies have the opportunity to provide a dolphin swim encounter
that includes a meaningful experience created by highly qualified
trainers and veterinarians with a deep commitment to continuing care and
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.
The Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon is celebrating its 10th birthday
this year, so there can be no better reason to get training and
celebrate with more than 1,000 other runners on Sunday 2 December.
At Dolphin Discovery in West Bay, the aim is not only to enable people
to interact with dolphins, but also to make use of the captive audience
they have to educate people about these amazing creatures.
our run will take you along the waterfront of George Town, the capital of the Cayman Islands, into the residential area of South Sound, which boasts multi-million dollar homes and dazzling views of the ocean and then into the financial district and along the waterfront once again.
With warm sunny weather pretty much all year round, Cayman is the ideal sport for anyone who fancies a bit of outdoor adventure. These can vary greatly, from deep under water to up in the sky, and everything in between.
