STOP Disney – Last Chance for Lighthouse Point

STOP Disney – Last Chance for Lighthouse Point


Lighthouse Point, South Eleuthera, Bahamas.

Excerpts;

“There are plenty of places in the Bahamas where Disney can dock its cruise ships. There is only one Lighthouse Point.

We are deeply concerned about Disney’s plans that threaten this unique natural place treasured by generations of Bahamians and visitors from around the world. The seas surrounding the point are so biologically rich that they have been formally proposed as a Marine Protected Area.

This is NOT the place where an environmentally responsible corporation would choose to construct a massive private cruise ship port – the centerpiece of which is a half-mile-long pier cutting across coral reefs including endangered staghorn coral. The port’s construction and operation would seriously harm the environment, while the economic benefits to communities in South Eleuthera are still unclear and very questionable…” – Change.org

TAKE ACTION: Save Lighthouse Point and Sign this petition to call upon Disney to secure a different, more suitable site for their cruise ship port and instead work with Bahamian citizen groups on a sustainable development alternative for Lighthouse Point. – Change.org
