Yes please lets all get on the band wagon for safety around the island.

We also need some pressure in regards to the water visibility conditions. The low vis is being caused by the late Star Island project and the dredging that they did also for the leeward cut going thru. They stirred up the minerals from dredging so deep and it is like baby powder. No it is being pushed around even more, by storms, and when it gets into the water it has a hard time dissipating. If this continues the coral on the north shore, that is the Bight Reef and Smiths Reef plus others in between, will be ruined for ever. Please heip us get this word out to find a way to save our coral.

Hey snubagirl,

Are they still dredging now? I thought that was halted. Is there an organization for reef preservation in TCI?

It was stopped but the damage is done and continues to affect the waters. If you leave sand etc just lying around it will blow around and cause problems. That is why we need it dealt with and not just left. No organization here to help so we will have to go to the top of govt.

Thanks for letting us know this.

We can thank Goodness that it has stopped. At the very least, nature does have a beautiful way of healing itself over time.

TCI has gone through a couple years of chaos. I think we'll see it's going to turn out to be good in the long run. A giant spotlight was placed on things that were under the surface for years. That can only be good.
