Meet Dwayne Frederick, the Cayman Islands’ Conservationist of the Year
The National Trust’s Governor’s Conservation Awards were announced this Summer, recognising those leading the way in environmental conservation and historic preservation. The award for Conservationist of the Year was presented to Dwayne Frederick, a licenced volunteer with the Department of Environment who regularly patrols Cayman’s beaches to protect sea turtle nests and help prevent poaching. He and his wife live in Cayman Brac and are both heavily involved in local conservation efforts.
Frederick is also a founding member of the Cayman Brac Wildlife Rescue and is involved in research initiatives on the critically endangered rock iguana. Here, Frederick talks turtle walks, preserving heritage and each individual’s role in caring for the Earth.BACK TO NEWS
