Ocean-Guard: Save The Reefs

Eco Chic Cayman is proud to team up with Eco Divers Reef Foundation to help raise awareness about their coral nursery program.  Eco Divers Reef Foundation is a non-profit organization. Founders Brittany Balli and Aaron Hunt, are a husband and wife team devoted to restoring fragile and damaged reefs in the Cayman Islands.  The heart of their coral conservation efforts is to maintain local coral nurseries and coral out plant sites throughout the Cayman Islands.  Their ethos is coming together as a community in a united effort to preserve Cayman’s reefs to ensure a positive future for these precious ecosystems.  This will allow future generations the opportunity to enjoy Cayman’s reefs as we have done.  Eco Divers Reef Foundation is dedicated to protecting our reefs, and educating the youth and community about the important role coral reefs play in our oceans.

Why Reefs Matter


Coral reefs have inartistic value and are important to the health of our oceans, tourism, economy, fisheries and provide costal protection.  We need healthy coral reefs to continue to provide biologically diverse ecosystems to help maintain healthy oceans.  Coral reefs provide a source of food, act as a nursery and provide a habitat for a plethora of species.  Coral reefs are considered to be an underwater rainforest due to the richly biodiverse ecosystems that thrive as a result of coral reefs and the array of marine life that call the reefs home.  Healthy reefs are vital for healthy oceans and all marine life.

Get The Look: Ocean-Guard




Our Ocean-Guard t-shirts are an Eco Chic Cayman original design, printed by our friends at Stoak’d Cayman.  A special thank you to Stoak’d for helping us in this effort to raise awareness and funds to protect Cayman’s reefs.  Each t-shirt retails for CI$25 and a portion of the proceeds go directly towards funding Eco Divers Reef Foundation Coral Nursery Program.  Their coral nurseries are instrumental in preserving and rejuvenating Cayman’s coral reefs.
