Calendars support National Trust

Ladies in Little Cayman who have produced a calendar all in support of the National Trust are appealing to the community to purchase it so they can purchase and preserve an important piece of land.

The calendar, titled ‘Support the Boobies’ is on sale on all three islands, with all proceeds going to the Little Cayman National Trust and their ongoing efforts to save and support the Red Footed Booby birds, said a press release.

Little Cayman boasts the largest colony of the Red Footed Booby birds in the Western Hemisphere. Unfortunately, the bird is in decline over most of its range, and it is believed by experts that the colony on Little Cayman now represents at least a third of its entire Caribbean and Atlantic population, the release noted.
