Tropical Marine Ecology Workshop
Date: 08/07/10 - 08/14/10
Location: Honduras

Tropical Marine Ecology is an 8-day workshop at a tropical reef in Roatan, The Bay Islands, Honduras, Central America. Here we will study the biodiversity of a coral reef ecosystem and the related habitats that support its complex structure. Observe the dynamics of age-old survival relationships of unique animals on the reef and the pressures of an emerging tourist destination on these delicate relationships. Swim and interact with dolphins at the largest dolphin encounter in the Caribbean. Comfortable boats will deliver us to the calm, sheltered coral reef lying just offshore, where you will be snorkeling among the reef fishes in warm water almost as clear as air. This course is a must for nature lovers and science teachers at all levels. Transform life science and social studies lessons with materials and experiences that will allow students to construct their own models of these complex but crucial ecosystems.
