Cayman Turtle Centre prepares for storm conditions
In view of the Severe Weather Bulletins and Tropical Storm Watch issued for the Cayman Islands, preparations are underway at Cayman Turtle Centre to ensure that all visitors, staff and animals remain safe. The Centre will be closed to the public on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th November.
In preparation for the forecast weather conditions due to Tropical Depression Eta, predicted to become a Tropical Storm, necessary precautions are being put in place at the Centre, and the most vulnerable animals are being temporarily rehoused in safe and secure enclosures until the storm has passed.
“Following yesterday’s announcement of a Tropical Storm Watch and the Severe Weather Bulletins for the Cayman Islands, our dedicated crew members have been busy putting our disaster preparedness plan into action and ensuring our animals will be safe while the Centre is closed to the public.” Mr. Tim Adam, CEO, said.
“We are hoping that the storm will pass by the Cayman Islands without incident, but in light of the severe weather warnings, we will be prepared.”
As soon as the storm passes and the all-clear is given, work will begin to prepare the Centre for re-opening to the public.
Cayman Turtle Products announced it will be open earlier today at 11:30 AM and closing at 1:30 PM.
