Lessons and Field trips 

The Cayman Islands Mangrove Rangers operate under the Mangrove Education Project, a nonprofit dedicated to educating people of all ages on what mangroves are, the importance of mangroves and threats they are facing. 

The Mangrove Education Project offers multiple types of lessons and fieldtrips to students and other groups locally in the Cayman Islands. We have recently expanded to not only offer lessons on mangroves, but seagrass and coral reef ecosystems too!

Please see our list of opportunities below. If you are interested in booking a lesson or tour, please contact us at info@mangroverangers.ky for more information and availability. 

*Please note that all lessons include hands on activities (excluding the Virtual Classroom Lesson). Lessons and field trips can be tailored to individual lesson plans and specific school curriculums*
