Activities The Department of Environment (DOE) seeks to develop and support environmental citizenship by promoting awareness, understanding and appreciation of Caymans natural environment. Together with other government agencies, non-profit organizations and the private sector the DOE has contributed to the structure, programmes and funding of environmental education in the Cayman Islands. Of particular note is the Coral Gardens Teacher’s Guide. With the kind permission of Coral Forest the teacher’s guide was adapted from the original Coral Forest manuscript. While much of the format and structure of the topics remain similar, the text and pictures have been significantly altered to more accurately reflect the local marine environment and related issues for the Cayman Islands. The Coral Garden’s Teacher’s Guide provides background information on the complexity of coral reefs and their surrounding environment, the threats that they are facing, and the possible solutions to these threats.
