Phoebe Luijten, a first-year student at Montessori by the Sea, decided to forego presents for her birthday party this year and instead raise money for Shark Conservation Cayman.

The 4-year-old girl received $340 from guests at her birthday party to give to Shark Conservation Cayman, a collaboration between the Cayman Islands Department of Environment and Marine Conservation International.

When asked why Phoebe choose Shark Conservation Cayman, she said, “because they are good for the environment.”
