Sustainability is a prime concern for CCMI. When the Little Cayman Research Centre was built in 2004/2005, the blueprint included cutting edge sustainable designs by Doak Architecture, including composting toilets, waterless urinals, gray water gardens, a solar hot water in the sustainable bathhouse, solar lighting in the wet lab and renewably-powered pumps, which are used where possible for small applications such as aquaria.

CCMI also has a 100,000 gallon cistern for fresh water and a roofing system that maximizes water collection.

Our courses all include sustainable aspects and we are designing a sustainable outreach programme to help the local community develop new and innovative ways to protect the ocean and earth’s precious resources for future generations.
