HRH Prince Edward pleased with CCMI

His Royal Highness, Prince Edward, seems very pleased with what he saw during last week’s visit to the Central Caribbean Marine Institute Research Centre in Little Cayman.

In a new video produced for CCMI, the Earl of Wessex remembers the early visits when the facility was merely an idea and then a simple gazebo. Over the past decade, more than 1,000 children have been part of CCMI’s educational programmes.

The Earl believes it is critical that the centre is “able to educate and try to teach every young Caymanian about what is around them, and to value what’s below the ocean and the reef system they have here. I think it’s really important to raise the whole profile of reef research and how important they are as ecosystems, and how we must look after them in the future.”

The Earl says coral decline poses an urgent threat and that CCMI research can help reverse that.
