World Turtle Day

Turtles: Are they really the coolest surfers in the sea? Last month we celebrated World Turtle Day on the 23rd of May; an awareness day that many probably don’t know exists. So why should we celebrate this day every year, or should I say ‘shellebrate’? This special day was devoted to both tortoises and turtles, [...]

The Cat Report 9 – 16 June

I’m sitting in my room sipping down on a smoothie and trying to figure out what to write for this week’s Cat Report. However I find myself getting distracted, the vervet monkeys are unimpressed with something in the distance… Then the squirrels and finally the francolins start alarming. My immediate thought is that there [...]

My Iguana Neighbour

Growing up, the movie Jurassic Park scared the living daylights out of me! Not only the questionable topless scene of Jeff Goldblum, but the possibility of prehistoric creatures eating me or my puppy. Fast forward to present day and my irrational fear may have increased since I find myself wandering the island with large prehistoric [...]

Coffee mugs can save the environment

I was not taught about picking up after myself at school, my mother did that; and I thought it was universal. It stayed with me all the way through childhood. In fact, I think it was the first element of taking care of myself and my surroundings that I learned and took to heart. That [...]

Learning to dive, when you ain’t got fins

  I was not born to swim - indeed my skill in the water thus far can be likened to that of driftwood i.e. able to float but poor at moving in one direction with any efficacy. So it was with some trepidation that I learned from the Madman for whom I work that I [...]

The Cat Report: 26 May – 1 June

As we reach the end of May, with winter fast approaching, we bear witness to the changing of the seasons. The dryness can now be seen not only in the browning grass and the falling leaves but also in the dwindling waterholes and drying muddy-wallows. We entered into this last week with the build up [...]

My camp and other animals: By Gregory’s grace

You would think, living in the wilderness surrounded by wild fauna (human and animal alike) might satiate the human need for animal companionship. You might think that evening visits from the local hyena clan or the garden eating bushbuck would be enough. But, you would be wrong. For as long as I have lived here, [...]

The Other Marine Ecosystems of the Cayman Islands

  With increasing anthropogenic (human induced) stresses affecting the marine environment, there has been much focus placed on coral reefs and how they are being affected as a result; for good reason too. Despite only contributing 1% of the ocean’s surface area, the complex structures of coral reefs are home to an estimated [...]

The Cat Report: 19 – 25 May

Both the Mara and Djuma teams had an action-packed week with some great surprises in both locations. The rain is still creating tricky conditions for the Mara crew, as most roads are not drivable so searching is limited to main roads but despite this we have been super lucky!   On Sunday, we found Naretoi [...]
