CCMI hosts an annual Reef Lecture series that is open to the general public. These events engage citizen scientists and watersports industry personnel in the latest research and information to come out of the Little Cayman Research Station. These are great events for anyone who is interested to learn more about CCMI’s current research initiatives as well as other issues impacting the marine environment.

Reef Lectures are held on Little Cayman at the Southern Cross Club weekly at 6pm each Thursday. In Grand Cayman, Reef Lecture events are every 2-3 months at various locations on island and cover a range of topics.

All Reef Lectures are free and open to the general public; registration is requested due to limited seating at some events. We invite everyone to join us in learning more about our coral reefs and the important work being done to protect and restore them!

Upcoming Grand Cayman Reef Lecture:

Important Fish on the Reef: What Do You Think?

by Dr Claire Dell, CCMI

DATE: Tuesday, 25th June 2019

TIME: 5:45pm-7pm

LOCATION: National Gallery of the Cayman Islands, Dart Auditorium

As part of CCMI’s 2019 Reef Lecture series, Dr Claire Dell will share the results of her work investigating the herbivores on the reefs of the Cayman Islands.

Herbivory is a critical process in maintaining and promoting reef health, so it is vital to determine the species that are most important. In addition to presenting results of her work, Dr Dell is asking the audience about their experiences on the reefs in the Cayman Islands. She also wants input from the audience about their ideas and feelings about what they think needs to be done to safeguard the reefs in the coming years.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is requested. Register today by clicking here.
