Dates: March 10 - 14, 2019
Price: 1,200$ (does not include travel and some food)
Credit: 1 laboratory credit
Program Deadline: December 1st, 2018
Additional Information: This is an emersive experience at two biological field stations in the Florida Keys.
The first two nights and three days will be at MarineLab in Key Largo. The next four
days and three nights will be at the Elizabeth Moore Field Research Station run by
Mote Marine Laboratory. Students will snorkel (and dive if they have their open-water
SCUBA license) the coral reef, snorkel the mangroves and sea grass beds. Students
will perform wetlab activities at MarineLab where they will investigate invertebrate
diversity, planktonic diversity, and sea grass ecology. At Mote, students will see
first hand the research facilities and coral restoration facilities. Students will
observe coral decline (due to disease and bleaching) across the Keys barrier reef,
which varies in latitude.
