Great Victory for Blue Lagoon Jamaica!

Blue Lagoon, Portland, Jamaica

Jamaica's precious Blue Lagoon won a significant victory this week when a Preservation Notice was signed by the Government. Below is the letter from the Jamaica National Heritage Trust with the good news. The Preservation Notice is the first step to protecting the integrity of the Lagoon. It was 60 years ago that Jamaica's first Prime Minister, Norman Manley sent his preservation notice to the Cabinet earmarking Blue Lagoon to be preserved for future generations. It is a great victory that is now taking place for Jamaica's environment and the beautiful Blue Lagoon. Congratulations to all who have helped to make this possible and in particular to my friend Adrienne Joan Duperly of Blue Lagoon Restoration Jamaica who has worked tirelessly by advocating for Blue Lagoon and to Laleta Davis Mattis of the Jamaica National Heritage Trust who made it happen!
