We are excited to announce that 1,000 copies of 'A Parrotfish's Tale,' a special Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) edition, will be making their way to the Little Cayman Research Center in the Cayman Islands in March 2016.
In December 2015 'A Parrotfish's Tale' was included as an auction item in the Festival of the Seas Gala and Fundraising Event that supports the Central Caribbean Marine Institute's projects and initiatives. The gala was held at the Ritz Carlton on Grand Cayman.
Packages of a special CCMI edition of 'A Parrotfish's Tale' were an auction item, where donors had the opportunity to make it possible for the books to be donated to the CCMI Little Cayman Research Center's education programmes.
I am thrilled to be entering the new year working on this project for CCMI. The new edition will include educational material to promote discussion of the issues covered in the book, the much needed balance in the oceans, in the context of the Caribbean with special emphasis on the Cayman Islands region and a special dedication to the donors who made this all possible.
We thank the generous donors who have made it possible for 1,000 school children to leave the Research Center with 'A Parrotfish's Tale' in hand. And I extend a special thank you to Ellen Cuylaerts, Event Coordinator, inspirational wildlife photographer and mentor, for including 'A Parrotfish's Tale' in the 2015 Festival of the Seas Gala and Fundraising Event! Parrotfish can't wait to share his story and message with new friends in the Cayman Islands <>< <><
