Enquiry regarding information relating to draft Seabird Conservation Plan
1) Protected status of the White-tailed Tropic Birds. Birds are listed as ‘Aves / Birds’, i.e., all birds, on Schedule 1 Part 1 (species protected at all times) of the National Conservation Act, 2013. This reflects the protected status that birds have had in the Cayman Islands for decades preceding the National Conservation Act when again all birds were protected under the Animals Act. This protection moved to the National Conservation Act in 2013.
2) Suitability of the properties for tropic bird nesting. We recognise the concern expressed by some landowners regarding the suitability of proposed critical habitat areas for nesting by the relevant species of seabirds. This concern will be transmitted to the National Conservation Council when they review the public feedback to the proposed Conservation Plan.
3) There are many threats to our native seabirds, including threats that are beyond our control. However, we respectfully suggest that as with many things where some factors are beyond control, it becomes more important to control the factors that can be controlled. In the case of protected species in the Cayman Islands, some of the factors which can, potentially, be controlled can be done so through the use of the critical habitat designation for their nesting areas.
4) Nest disturbance by alien species is indeed one of the factors likely contributing to seabird decline in the Cayman Islands (as around the world) and which is potentially amenable to local actions. Potential alien species impacts could be:
a. Rats, can target eggs and chicks.
b. Green Iguanas, can disturb nests and take eggs or even chicks.
c. Cats, can target chicks and adults, or just injure/kill adults defending their chicks.
d. Dogs, can disturb the adult birds, either reducing their breeding fitness through stress or driving them off of suitable nesting sites completely, or take eggs or chicks.
The draft Conservation Plan therefore recognises alien species controls as one of the actions needed to help local seabird populations. However, we would hesitate to argue that any one issue or intervention is the most important since these birds are suffering under a combined load of threats and different species and nesting habitats will have differing priorities and practicalities for conservation measures. In many cases we will likely have to address several challenges at once to try and preserve our native species.
5) Public education and outreach will be important to the successful preservation of native seabirds such as the White-tailed Tropicbirds, and this is likewise included in the draft Conservation Plan. We have experienced that public education can be made easier with simple consistent rules applying to all related areas equally to the greatest extent possible. Public education will be one of those approaches most successfully deployed in tandem with other species conservation measures. Such as minimising the disturbance of nesting birds by companion animals such as dogs. In the case of species with small populations, such as the locally nesting White-tailed Tropic birds have been reduced to especially on Grand Cayman, even individual cases of disturbance, say by a single particularly adventurous dog, could be detrimental. While most dogs may not choose to access the iron shore, this just means that those dogs should not be roaming unrestrained into the Critical Habitat in the first place which should make this proposed rule of little practical difficulty for their owners.
6) Legal authority to designate critical habitat
a. National Conservation Act, 2013
b. Critical habitat is defined in the Act as areas of land specified in the conservation plan for the species which the land is critical habitat for, in this case the various seabirds.
c. All birds, including seabirds, are listed in Part 1 (species protected at all times) of Schedule 1 of the Act. (Though excluding those gamebirds listed on Part 2, which may be hunted in accordance with the General Regulations to the Act.)
d. 17(1) – The Council shall formulate and adopt conservation plans for protected species. (Note, this is not a quote of the relevant section, merely a reference.) Critical habitat is designated in the conservation plan for the protected species, which the Council formulates and adopts under the Act.
e. 3(9)(e) – The Council has the function of conserving critical habitats of protected species. (Note, this is not a quote of the relevant section, merely a reference.)
f. 3(12)(b) – The Council may make orders and guidance notes, and issue directives, including measures to conserve protected species and their critical habitat. (Note, this is not a quote of the relevant section, merely a reference.)

A. The DOE (CI Gov’t) was advised of their right to participate, as set out in UNCLOS Part XII Article 249 (a), in the recent RRS James Cook research Cruise and other upcoming research cruises involving RV Falkor (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute) and upcoming the Japanese Research Expedition using their human occupied submersible Shinkai 6500? B. DOE has in their possession; copies of the data-sets from each of three US cruises to the Mid-Cayman Rise since 2009 that have been forwarded to National Oceanography Center in the UK and copies of the data sets from each of the UK cruises to the Mid Cayman Rise since 2009 that are held at the National Oceanography Center in the UK? Also, has there been any correspondence to indicate that these data sets will be provided to the DOE in the near future? C. There is any evidence (to your best knowledge) of on-going efforts by the UK Government to provide any of the following: natural resource stewardship, natural resource protection, natural resource marine enforcement, or marine resource type patrols in the area around the Cayman Islands that is beyond 12 nautical miles, but within the established and demarcated Cayman EEZ borders, and / or within the extent of the un-demarcated but ‘presumed’ Cayman Islands EEZ, the specific geographical points of which are yet to be agreed upon with Cayman and Cuba and Cayman and Jamaica? D. Has the FCO or the Governor’s Office (which have certain responsibilities for Treaties, and Internal and External Affairs and who have expressed a strong emphasis on the importance of proactive natural environment protection and environmental preservation in the Cayman Islands and other Overseas Territories) provided the DOE with any advice, guidance or instruction on how to manage, protect, preserve, monitor, patrol or otherwise provide appropriate stewardship of the areas beyond 12 nautical miles but with the Cayman Islands EEZ (both presumed and demarcated)? E. There has been any advice, encouragement or initiatives emanating from the FCO or the Governor’s Office about citizens of the Cayman Islands utilizing the resources on such places known to the people of the Cayman Islands as the Pickle Bank, or the area known as the 60 mile bank, or the portion of the 12 mile bank that falls beyond the Cayman Islands territorial waters, or any other area beyond 12 nautical miles of the shoreline of the Cayman Islands? If so, what information or advice was provided? F. Representatives of the DOE have seen the blog http://www.thesearethevoyages.net/jc82/feb7.html; of the U.K. Gov’t Expedition to the Mid-Cayman Rise, and if representatives of the DOE are aware that In that blog, the Expedition Leader, Jon Copely wrote the following on February 7th, 2013: “It used to be said that Britain had an empire on which the sun never set, because its territories were spread all around the globe. These days, the UK actually has an “undersea empire” on which the sun mostly never shines… Our expedition will at least reveal part of it; and to me, “ownership” of seafloor territory means responsibility for its stewardship” In light of those statements, has the UK Government / FCO or Governor’s office indicated to the Department of Environment if the people of the Cayman Islands have any rights to any of the bits of the ‘ Undersea Empire’ around the Cayman Islands beyond 12 nautical miles and if so, which areas, and what sort of rights? G. DOE has been contacted by Trevor Guymer who is listed at the main contact for the Cayman Islands for UNESCO IOCARIBE, a regional subsidiary body of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission? Also has DOE been contacted by the only Institutional Structure listed for the Cayman Islands, the Marine Office, Natural Environment Research Council NERC? Request for Information – Closed

The information need not state the person’s exact salary. Established ranges will be fine.’ ‘I do not require the employees’ names or their positions within the portfolio.
