More photos from Grand Cayman

Sophie Halford from the Cayman Islands Department of Environment posted these and several other photos on's photostream, as part of the International Day of Climate Action on October 24th. Taken at Mixing Bowl, North Wall, in Little Cayman the photos show examples of the coral bleaching (the white patches) that have recently occurred around the Cayman Islands. As Sophie points out, this could happen more and more frequently if global temperatures continue to rise, which would be very bad news for the reef communities and the dive tourism industry of
the Cayman Islands.

A photo by Darren Bowyer on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman shows the 350 message at a sea swim of over 150 participants.
