The first episode aired on March 22, 2024, at 10 am Cayman Time (UTC-5h). It is titled “Our Physical Ocean,” and laid the groundwork by covering the fundamentals of oceanography, which are the basis of life in our oceans.

Additional episodes scheduled for broadcast include:

Commenting on the program, CCMI General Manager Kate Holden stated:

“The Reefs Go Live program is an extraordinary and engaging learning tool for students all around the world. We bring the stunning reefs of Little Cayman directly to students in their class. Global stresses are affecting our reefs, even though they have proven resilient over 25 years of monitoring. So it is even more important that ocean health is taught and taught well, to as many young people as possible.”
