Our island nation of Jamaica or Xaymaca which means “land of wood and water” is our home that needs to be protected and preserved for all future generations.
The beauty of Jamaica’s physical environment forms one of the major pillars of our heritage that is worth protecting. Our beaches are one of our greatest treasured natural resources that enshrines this beauty and it belongs to all of us.
Our pristine and rustic beaches are themselves living entities and are part of the soul of our island nation. They are limited and fragile environmental entities that need to be cherished. Some of our fondest holiday memories, spiritual awakening and inspiration happen on our beaches. Our fisherfolks help feed this nation from the sea. Part of our darkest history can be told on the beaches of Jamaica on which our enslaved ancestors landed and were dehumanized by slavery.
