    It is his land. If you are so opposed to it, raise some funds, buy it from him and donate the land to the Bermuda national trust. I am often amazed when people, who sometimes don’t own anything, try and tell people who have sacrificed and paid for land, what they can’t and/or should do with their property. I am all for conservation but people need to put their money where their passions lie. The land owner already has.
