Did you know that the Cayman Islands has the largest continuous wetland in the Caribbean? It is located in the middle of Grand Cayman Island and we call it the Central Mangrove Wetlands. It is home to many animals, both on land and in the sea. Let us protect this magnificent wetland, as it has so many benefits, not just for animals, but for us humans too! We have made an animation to help you learn more about this beautiful wetland, with the help of Mr. Keeley, also known as the Mangrove Man. He has been working tirelessly to protect our wetlands and has students all over the world. Mr. Keeley has visited about 16 countries to educate people about wetlands and mangroves.

Karina Lapteva, Country Representative for Iraq for the Swedish Red Cross, stumbled across the CIRC’s Health and Hygiene video in February 2021:
“The cartoon characters, the colors, and the simple messaging captivated me,” explains Ms. Lapteva. “Even one year into the pandemic it continued to be important to disseminate child-friendly content that engages kids, while also passing important messages about the ABCs of COVID hygiene and prevention,” she adds. “From the first time I watched the video I knew that Bobo & Teedee must join us in Iraq as they will be excellent campaigners alongside the Iraqi Red Crescent Society!”
