SAVING OUR BEACH AND ENVIRONMENT BY EXTENSION

February 2016, NEPA and the NRCA refused to grant an environmental permit to Duncan's Bay Development Company (DBDC) to quarry beach sand at East Duncan's Bay. several reasons were given for the refusal, including significant coastal ecosystem loss, negative impact on sand budget resulting in the loss of sand required to sustain the shoreline marine ecosystem; the proposed location is a sea turtle nesting site; and mining is likely to result in an increase in shoreline erosion; inundation of the backshore area due to increased tidal variations and the creation of hyper saline conditions. The mining of the Duncan's Bay beach by the Duncan's Bay Development Company will have more devastating impact that positive impact. Let us save our beach and our environment.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Most Hon. Andrew M. Holness MP, ON
    Ministry land/environment and the Prime Minister of Jamaica
  • Residence of Jamaica
