Introducing the Little Cayman Hope Spot

The smallest of the Cayman Islands is home to fewer than 200 people – and yet at roughly 10 miles long by one mile wide, Little Cayman has become known as a magnificent oasis in the Caribbean. Behind Little Cayman's conservation success is the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) and their coral restoration work as well as their ocean literacy program aimed at educating every child on the island to be "ocean literate" by the age of 12!

Psst: there's another Hope Spot launching this week – stay tuned on the Mission Blue social media channels for the scoop.
