1:00pm March for the Ocean

We will celebrate World Oceans Day by participating in the international March for the Ocean. This march is to raise awareness of the need for action on a personal and global scale to reduce our impact on coral reefs. Join us in this march to make a statement that it’s not too late, but we must act now to restore and protect what we love.

Wear colours of the sea and bring your sign that tells what you are marching for. Join thousands of people from around the world who will also be marching for the ocean on 9th June, as we remind people that we are all connected to the oceans during this short walk through Camana Bay.

1:45pm Reef Lecture Series – Reefs Go Live broadcast

 

CCMI: Reefs go live

The March for the Ocean will end at the Camana Bay Cinema, where registered participants will be treated to a ‘live dive’ virtual experience with our educators and researchers in Little Cayman. We’ll explore the topic ‘Can Coral Reefs Be Saved’ as we take the audience on an interactive experience, live-streamed from underwater on the reefs of Little Cayman while the CCMI team does their work underwater. Join us as we explore our coral reefs and learn how we can all help ensure we have zero impact on these special habitats.

Attendees are encouraged to participate in both events, which are free and open to the public. Families are encouraged to participate. REGISTRATION IS REQUESTED.
