Save Jamaica’s Blue Lagoon

The following is by a concerned Jamaican Mr. Marc Goodman.

One of the Caribbean’s most spectacular and tranquil natural sites, Jamaica’s Blue Lagoon has long been abandoned to touts, illegal activity and decay, but is now being developed (most recent being a large artificial beach on its shores, the site of events/parties such as one shown in the video whose address is below) – facilitated, amazingly, by the country’s environmental agencies.

Please write, fax or call the authorities using the contact info shown near the end of this video, to demand that all development be reversed, and the Lagoon restored to a natural state, protected forever as parkland, with all necessary facilities and regulations.

(I’ve been informed that email is not effective, as it’s read by staff and not by the addressee; if a letter comes it must be logged and taken more seriously, and I imagine the same goes for faxes and phone calls.)

Please pass it on.

    Damn… You think it would be common sense for the government to invest in one of it’s natural tourist attractions instead of selling it off and allowing the ‘owner’ to neglect it and have it poorly and agressively regulated.

    I read there is a racial component to this has the owner is black. Is there any truth to this? I really don’t like the race card being used for everything but in this world anything is possible. There are lots of non-Jamaicans who are getting away with these things in JA for some reason no protest is heard of. I will not write on contact any one as I am not sure what is really happening here.

    We all need to write the authorities to protest what’s happening there. Politicians respond (sometimes) to people power…see Middle East.

    This is very sad. I went there last year – it was my very first time and I saw garbage etc around the place. It looks neglected.

    Maybe some other group should come Jamaica and protect it.

    Such a disgrace.
