I am a long-time, long-term visitor to Grand Cayman, where my wife and I spend about six weeks each year.

Noting the problem of sargassum on the beaches, I’d be happy to spend a couple of days cleaning up, and giving back to the island which has given us so much.

Has anyone ever thought of a small programme utilising tourist volunteer services?

Perhaps it’s not an option for the one-week visitor, but I am sure there would be a number of people such as I who would be happy to contribute.

If something like this already exists, I’d love to learn about it.

  1. Use prisoners, unemployed, Caymanians who hang around with nothing to do, to clean the beaches of sargassum. It is nice if tourists can help, but they spend a fortune in hotels here, have limited time to enjoy a vacation, and quite frankly the unemployed labor force here need to be put to work. Lazy, weak societies, encourage weak nations.
