CCMI host online underwater exhibition & auction


CCMI’s operations, like many around the world have been heavily impacted by the global pandemic. Travel restrictions have prohibited a fully booked calendar of students and collaborative researchers from visiting the CCMI research station on Little Cayman. Many of their activities for the remainder of the year will be impacted as well, including the Festival of Seas.

As part of their efforts to continue researching resiliency in coral reefs to better ensure their long-term survival, they are auctioning off some stunning underwater photography by extremely talented underwater photographers. These photos are part of their effort this year to bring news of hope, resiliency, and a clear pathway for corals reefs.

The auction closes at 1pm Cayman time (UTC -5) on Sunday, 21st June. All auction proceeds will support CCMI’s work for coral reef resilience as we continue to discover which corals are resilient and can adapt to changing climate.

Once you register on this site, you can start bidding on your favourite photos in this silent auction. If you like a particular image but would prefer it in a different size or printed on a different medium, please contact us at to discuss options & pricing.
