programme-news-3-main-esso-for-the-bluesWe passed into 2009 with Cayman’s local Esso company raising money for the Blue Iguanas by donating a few cents for every gallon of gasoline sold at all their stations throughout the Cayman Islands. Huge banners, funds-raised ‘thermometers’, staff shirts and Blue Iguana tote bags made it certain that nobody driving around could miss the message. The cents added up very quickly, and the thermometers quickly suggested that the end dollar tally would be in the tens of thousands. Sure enough, the donation just arrived, and it is a princely 29,181 Cayman Islands Dollars! A reflection on the busy driving habits of resident of the Cayman Islands, and a testament to how commercial promotion partnering with conservation can make a real impact. Thank you, Esso Cayman!
