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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Mercy Goes Wild

It is a picturesque journey. For about 10 kilometers after you turn off the main highway and start descending into the Rift Valley, you are treated to one of the most magnificent views in the world. It is also a harrowing road that dangles precariously on the edge of an escarpment, with equally scary oncoming [...]

World Turtle Day Shellebrations!

World Turtle Day falls on the 23rd of May every year and is an awareness day that many probably don’t know exists. So why should we celebrate this day, or should I say ‘shellebrate’? This special day was devoted to both tortoises and turtles, reptiles in the order Testudines which rely on their shells [...]

diveLIVE Diaries: It’s all about the people

Imagine turning up to your second day of work and your boss tells you to do an unprepared presentation to 1.8 million people. Sounds pretty ridiculous right? Well, welcome to day 2 of the diveLIVE adventure. Thinking back to my first day, meeting new colleagues who were soon to become my Caymanian family, it’s [...]

diveLIVE Diary: Week 1 to present

It may be only week 3 in Grand Cayman, but I already feel like a different person from the dude that jumped off the plane only 16 days ago. Not only have I experienced physical changes (darker skin, lighter hair and loss of the beer belly), I also feel a great sense of positive [...]

An Afternoon with the Cheetah, Naretoi, and Her Cubs

The long rains continue to sweep through the Mara leaving the Triangle a waterlogged paradise. The roadways have transformed into waterways, and they are a few litres short of turning our safaris into cruises. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but we do have to be particularly careful even in areas where offroading is [...]
