And so, here's the riddle:
What can the 9,000 Coral-List subscribers do to stop all of Grand Cayman's remaining coral reefs from ending up in a museum?
Or to stop all coral reefs in the world to be reduced to museum exhibits and extirpated from the oceans?
What is the power of 9,000?

The reefs on Grand Cayman are rapidly fading away and still they continue to
further insult and degrade their marine ecosystem by planning for a new
cruise ship berthing pier and now this.
How does it go? "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot . With a
pink hotel, a boutique and a swinging hot spot. Don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what you've got âtil it's gone". Perhaps Joni
Mitchell had this in mind when almost 50 years ago she suggested that all
the trees would one day only be found in a tree museum. As for the future
of Grand Cayman's coral reefs, looks like they need to draw up plans for a
coral reef museum . . . and don't you know that they will charge all the
people more than a dollar and a half just to see them.
