Virtual registrations also available.
WHO: Local schools/classes, tourists, members of the community – everyone!
WHAT: World Ocean Day Reefs Go Live at the Camana Bay Cinema
WHEN: Wednesday, 8th June 2022; 10:00 am – 10:40 am (UTC -5h)
Reefs Go Live
Join CCMI as one of our virtual dive buddies for our special World Ocean Day 2022 Reefs Go Live broadcast: Restoring Healthy Reefs for the Future. The dive team in Little Cayman will take us underwater to explore the coral reefs, discuss what it means when a reef is healthy, and share with us what CCMI is doing to help keep our reefs healthy in the Cayman Islands. We’ll also learn how we can all do our part to ensure there are many healthy reefs for the future.
This event is **FREE** and open to local schools, tourists, and members of the public. All school groups/classes are encouraged to participate.

Healthy Reefs Art Exhibit
For the third year, Ms. McDougall’s art class at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) were tasked with designing a poster in support of CCMI’s Healthy Reefs awareness campaign. This project was an assignment to students to develop artistic techniques while also working with a client, allowing students to develop transferrable life skills in support of their career path in art. As a bonus, students have taken renewed interest in their science classes, earning higher marks on tests as they connect their passion for art to the information about the natural world.
Over the course of several months in the fall of 2021, students practiced their techniques, spoke with CCMI staff, researched coral reefs, incorporated feedback from the client, and worked toward a final Healthy Reefs poster that was submitted as part of their portfolio for the course. Select pieces will be on display in the lobby of the Camana Bay Cinema before and after the Reefs Go Live broadcast.
The artwork is also on display online at our Healthy Reefs Virtual Art Exhibit, which can be found here: https://reefresearch.org/wod2022/cifec_2022/
