Vandalism on Anguilla

The lovely beach at Little Bay, named for its size, is famed for its clear waters, clean sand and fantastic marine life.

Recently the Fisheries Department spent a small fortune in erecting signs telling the public that the bay is a Marine Park and explaining the obligations that this designation brings. On Saturday our dive boat called in to the bay between dives and all aboard were shocked to see the state of the signs. As you can see, they have been completely destroyed by vandals. Not only does this show a blatant disregard for the meaning of the signs, it also shows that those responsible could not care less about polluting the beach or public safety, being quite happy to leave sharp shards lying about.

A sad state of affairs on Anguilla.

about time that something like this was highlighted. Lets hope the pepetrators feel suitably embarrassed.
