This is Taegen’s impression of the Central Mangrove field trip with her fellow Year 5 students from Edna Moyle Primary School, Grand Cayman, and the folks at Sea Elements.

Sue Ebanks from Year 5, Edna Moyle Primary School, Grand Cayman, drew these impressions of the different species seen during the field trip to the Central Mangroves.

We saw a lot of fries and we saw birds. There was a manowar  and a swallow.We observed an upside down jellyfish. We also got to touch an upside down jelly fish! We saw a stingray that was swimming gracefully.
