Featuring The Cockpit Country Pt 1: Ground Truthing Mission

Feature | September 6, 2019
The cockpit country is responsible for approximately 40 per cent of the island’s exploitable water resources and in November, 2017, The Government of Jamaica announced in Parliament the proposed boundaries, dubbing the region the Cockpit Country Protected Area (CCPA). In the months following, the Save the Cockpit Country petition and campaign was launched and since then, the CCPA has been the subject of much debate and controversy. The Forestry Department is undertaking a ground truthing mission to align the boundaries on the proposed map with the actual landmarks.
