THE Caribbean Coastal Area Management (C-CAM) Foundation is moving to bring sobriety to the raging debate over the proposed port development at the Goat Islands.

2013 marked the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) – March 3, 1973. To mark the anniversary, 3 March, 2014 has been chosen as the first ever World Wildlife Day. It is an important moment in global biodiversity conservation as CITES is a historic international agreement made between the governments of 180 member countries to protect earth’s species from the threat of exploitation due to trade.
