After noticing that the Pullmantur Zenith cruise ship was anchored oddly close to an ancient coral reef off the Cayman Islands, diving instructor Scott Prodahl decided to investigate. He then captured this incredible footage showing a massive portion of the reef completely destroyed, out front from the Don Fosters and Eden Rock, off the George Town port. According to Scott, The Department of Environment was contacted but nothing could be done because this was a designated anchorage zone and they were given permission to drop anchor.

    And nobody will even get a slap on the wrist for this, guaranteed. This is sickening, more so when one thinks about all this destruction being caused just so some rich people can stop for a day during a longer trip, wherein this will repeated over and over. Why are the reefs dying? It isn't ALL climate change, sweetie, but it's definitely all human greed and stupidity.
