Stand up for CORAL REEFS
World Ocean Day is celebrated across the globe in June each year, and the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) is encouraging people to join in the effort to Stand Up for Coral Reefs this June.
Participants will join CCMI scientists and educators for this virtual live dive with our team in Little Cayman to learn why we should stand up for coral reefs. Our Grand Cayman ‘dive buddies’ at the Cinema will help us explore this special ecosystem, and we’ll appreciate the beauty and diversity of coral reefs. Together, we will discuss why reefs are so important to the Cayman Islands, learn why climate change is an urgent threat to long term survival of coral reefs, and discuss why we need to stand up for coral reefs now. CCMI’s educators and researchers will help everyone leave the event with specific actions we can all take to help save corals reefs.
This event is free and open to the public, and it is appropriate for all ages. Please register here as space is limited for the in-person event. A virtual ticket to watch from anywhere in the world is also available!
