Paving Paradise in Grand Cayman. The Caymanian government has confirmed plans to build a massive cruise ship dock in Grand Cayman's Georgetown harbor, which environmentalists claim will have a devastating impact on the island's reefs. The reason for the dock, besides getting more ships, is so passengers don't have to deal with the five-minute tender transfer across the harbor. But per a environmental impact report released in June, the dredging process will destroy 15 acres of coral reef and likely harm another 20 acres, home to two critically endangered coral species and four threatened ones. "It is a sad day for the country," Keith Sahm, a leader of the Save Cayman anti-port campaign told Yahoo News. "Once they do this, there is no turning back."
