Guy Harvey Receives Certificate of Appreciation on First Anniversary of USS Kittiwake Sinking
Grand Cayman – January 5, 2012 – In celebrating the first anniversary of the sinking of the USS Kittiwake as an artificial reef, The Cayman Islands Tourism Association recently presented Cayman resident and celebrated marine wildlife artist and conservationist Dr. Guy Harvey with a certificate of appreciation.
An ardent supporter of the project, Dr. Harvey was on hand a year ago and photographed the sinking of the USS Kittiwake and its short journey to the bottom, 64ft below the surface off the north end of Seven Mile Beach. The Guy Harvey Research Institute served as one of the many original sponsors of the effort to make the USS Kittiwake an artificial reef. The effort received substantial support from the local dive and business communities as well as the government.
