Primary school students learn about local marine ecosystems

Year 5 students and teachers at Sir John A. Cumber Primary School in West Bay have benefited from an informative and educational presentation by staff at the Cayman Islands Department of Environmental Health.  

Janice Blumenthal and Laura Richardson, both research officers with the department, spoke with the students about ecosystems with emphasis on those in the Cayman Islands.  

The students are studying marine ecosystems both locally and internationally, as well as learning about actions that impact their balance and what can be done to conserve and maintain them.  

The students will follow up with brochures, booklets and posters on how to preserve the marine ecosystems.
