THE IMPORTANCE OF IN SITU EXPLORATION
At Reefs & Oceans, our goal is to help future generations of Marine Biologists solve the current ecological crises facing coral reefs and other aquatic ecosystems. We can accomplish this by encouraging in situ experiences for marine biology students from around the country.
REEFS FOR OCEANS
In Situ, from the Latin meaning “on-site,” can refer to both conservation and education techniques. Reefs & Oceans will provide an in situ educational experience for marine biology students by funding them to learn by studying and exploring the reef itself.
Think of it as an underwater classroom. While Marine Biologists and students might be able to study organisms in a lab or aquarium setting, at the Celebration Reef, they are able to get holistic, hands-on experience by being submersed in this aquatic laboratory.
Our in-situ training will provide opportunities for marine biology students alike to learn about organic trends, as well as implement and study assisted evolution techniques that will produce heartier, more durable corals, in order to protect our reefs for generations to come.
STUDENTS TO THE IMAGINATION REEF
Reefs & Oceans is committed to bringing marine biology students from around the country to the Celebration Reef for an immersive, in situ learning experience.
While travel to the Celebration Reef must be arranged by participants, Reefs & Oceans will cover training if necessary and diving expenses on a four-day, in-water, once-in-a-lifetime in situ intensive program.
