Oxford Cave, Jamaica

Oxford Cave is a cave in Manchester Parish in west-central Jamaica. It is 765 metres long and at 290 metres altitude.[1] The cave entrance is close by a main road and because of its accessibility has suffered much graffiti, vandalism and litter.[1] It is a roost for a great many bats, but these are under threat from the number of anti-social human visitors, many there to collect bat guano to use as farm fertiliser, others for bashments.[1]
