Rescue me

And about time. As of Friday, legal protection came into effect for stingrays, eagle rays and manta rays in Cayman waters.

Link: HERE

"The law was amended following reports that wild stingrays had been removed from local waters and were being housed in a tank at Dolphin Discovery in West Bay. Four of the 10 stingrays were found to have been tagged at the Sandbar in North Sound by scientists working with conservationist Guy Harvey on compiling a census of the animals. Those four were subsequently released back to the Sandbar in September, but six rays still remain in captivity at Dolphin Discovery."


So if you are ever visiting the island, make sure you boycott dolphin discovery as they have no morals or ethics when it comes to taking marine live out of the ocean and sticking them in a tank to make a quick buck. Please feel free to boycott the turtle farm as well whilst you're at it. :-)
