Press Release: Public drive to help protect land with the National Trust for the Cayman Islands

27th July 2021 –

The National Trust for the Cayman Islands (NTCI) Land Reserve Fund aims to purchase and hold for conservation environmentally sensitive lands across the Cayman Islands.
Executive Director Annick Jackman said a public drive to support the initiative was launched through a recent fundraising event, sponsored by CIBC FirstCaribbean.

“Currently, the National Trust protects over 3,531 acres of land across all three islands, preserving just under 6% of land in the Cayman Islands with a goal to reach 11%,” she said. “The support of organisations like CIBC FirstCaribbean and individual donors is critical for the National Trust to achieve its conservation goals. Together we can preserve the natural beauty and precious ecosystems that are unique to our three islands.”

NTCI properties include important nature reserves, such as the Brac Parrot Reserve in Cayman Brac, the Mastic Trail in Grand Cayman and Booby Pond in Little Cayman, and culturally significant sites such as the Mission House.
