Class/Orientation Presentations

Basic lesson plans for visiting schools include an interactive presentation in the education room, which can range from a quick overview of the Centre’s exhibits to a detailed topic lecture by our education team followed by a guided tour of subject-appropriate exhibits. Our educational presentations are also available for general public education sessions as well as for corporate and special interest groups.

Resource Materials

Shellby & Friends

Shellby and Friends are the newest mascots of the Cayman Turtle Education and Conservation Centre. Shellby, our green sea turtle, is always out and about, sharing information on why it’s so important to protect the environment. One of Shellby’s favorite on-island initiatives is Plastic Free Cayman! Shellby has taken the 345 Pledge – have you? You don’t have to live in the Cayman Islands to take the pledge.
