Big money or the environment?
You be the judge of that - read this.
The sinister saga of how the Bimini Bay Resort, now renamed into Resorts World Bimini is progressively destroying the island goes on and on and on, with no end in sight.
And the title of this post - too alarmist?
Dunno about the Hammers - but 14 years of research reveal that Doc's Lemons there are now at severe risk, and that the effects extend throughout the whole lagoon and impact critically endangered species like the Smalltooth Sawfish. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to hypothesize that if it hasn't already, this fiasco will surely end up affecting those Hammerheads in particular and Bimini's tourism in general.
Can this be turned around?
I'm frankly not very hopeful - but the Bimini Blue Coalition and a group of renown researchers are fighting back both in court but also, by exploring viable alternatives, and I invite you to follow their FB page in case they decide to enlist your help.
But above all, stop giving RWB your business!
During the next Hammerhead season, stay well clear of that wretched resort: no visits, no berthing, certainly no residing - and if your intruding dive operator is not so squeamish and tries to befuddle you with the usual bullshit, choose a different operator!
Yes I'm talking to you!
You know who you are!
