PM Urges More Dialogue on Proposed Dolphin Park

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet says dialogue is the best forward when discussing the proposed Dolphin Park at Pigeon Island.

The Saint Lucia National Trust and the UWP administration have been at loggerheads since the announcement of the park surfaced.

He called for the National Trust to step up their advocacy.

Despite growing environmental concerns and opposition to the proposed Dolphin Park at Pigeon Island National Landmark, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet says Cabinet has not approved the historical site as the location.

Chastanet claims that although the investor has applied to setup a Dolphin Park in principle; that does not mean that the National Landmark is the suitable spot.

During his recent holiday, the Prime Minister got an opportunity to see first hand the operations of a Dolphin Park in Ireland.

Chastanet alleges that the Former Administration had approved several locations for the Dolphin Park.

The National Trust, which operates the Pigeon Island National Landmark, is vehemently opposed to the Dolphin Park.

However, Prime Minister believes the organization has two conflicting roles.

The Prime Minister has requested that the Trust do more in terms of public education.

Animal Rights Activists and the public have beseeched the government to reconsider plans for the park.

Environmental Organizations are concerned that the proposed development might compromise the heritage sites at the National Landmark.
