The 5 themes of geography
Cayman Islands
The Cayman islands are 19.3333° N, 81.4000° W an are a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. The territory comprises of three islands the Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica. The Cayman Islands are considered to be part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone as well as the Greater Antilles. The territory is a major world offshore financial centre.
Some of the less recent houses are made from wattle and daub. Most of the cottages here are raised a bit away from the ground, with huge porches and gabled roofs. Rainwater is collected from the roof and stored in a cistern underneath the house. Houses are commonly known to be painted in pastel color's of pink, turquoise, and green. One popular thing on the island is having a "sand garden", covered with local flowering plants and shell's found around the local area; at Christmas, it's been a traditional to bring white sand from the beach and spread it around the house to resemble something the islander's almost never see which is snow. so they have there own type of white christmas.

The Cayman islands have always had a quite wonderful climate it's usually always beautiful there with tropical marine; warm/rainy summers (May to October) and cool, dry winters (November to April)

is a semi low limestone base that's continuosly surrounded by coral reefs.

Human-Environmental Interactions
The cayman islands where discovered by Christopher Columbus and the only way to get to the islands are either by plane or boat. once people are there they either are there to tour the islands beauty, live there or start a business because the business rights are different you can create a monopoly legally.
Because the islands cannot produce enough goods to support the population, a large number of the people living there up to 90% get their food and consumer goods from imports. In addition, the islands have a small number of natural fresh water. Desalination of sea water is used to solve this. Despite those challenges, the Caymanians enjoy one of the highest outputs per capita and one of the best standards of living on the planet. The Cayman Islands produces gourmet sea salt. The main fashion fads in the cayman islands are designer clothes, fancy stuff.
The most commonly spoken language around the Cayman Islands is English. Islanders' accents have had traits passed down from English, Scottish, and Welsh settlers in a language variety known as Cayman Creole. The most practiced religion in the Cayman Islands is Christianity. The island is situated on the top a massive underwater ridge, callled the Cayman Trench, from the bottom of the sea the cayman trench escalates 8,000 feet upward to breach the surface a little bit. The islands are located in the northwest of the Caribbean Sea, south of Cuba and west of Jamaica. They are positioned about 400 miles south of Miami, 180 miles south of Cuba, and 195 miles northwest of Jamaica.
The Cayman islands are surrouneded by a beach, so the ocean wildlife is incredible. there are many reafs, caves an underwater coves and much more scenery to explore as well as upon the surface. they have many trails so tourist or people in general can see the wildlife.
Human/enviromental interaction
The only harmful stuff i could find between humans and the cayman islands are some of the wild life suffers like the stingray have a weaker emmunie system than those who were never disturbed they found that out through blood tests. an as well with some of the nature gets destored to put raods, buildings and houses too.
