In advance of a new Guy Harvey documentary, hundreds of students this week are seeing some of the past work of the local ocean conservationist, and learn about the efforts to protect marine life.
More than five-hundred students came to the Camana Bay cinema today to view his previous film about white tip sharks.
Mr. Harvey’s invitation was designed to give the students an understanding of what is happening in our waters locally and around the world, especially when it comes to the oceanic white tip.
The students are learning that their population is in rapid decline due to industrial fishing.
“That there is about 20 species of sharks in Cayman Islands and over five hundred species of sharks in the world,” said Grade 4 students, Naomi Tibbetts.
“The millennials and the next generation that we just saw are the people who are going to be in a better position to become more educated and share their education with their family and friends and then to take action and that’s what it’s going to take, a lot of action going forward,” said Ocean Activist & Director, Guy Harvey.
Guy Harvey’s newest documentary will be screened on saturday evening at Regal cinemas.
It features five local students who joined Mr. Harvey and his team of scientists and researchers.
