Harbor Branch researchers collaborated with the South Florida Science Museum and Aquarium to release an informational video about the status of our Florida coral reefs. This informational video will help visitors to the aquarium understand the importance of the reefs close to their shores.
Ph.D. student Michael Studivan gave a presentation on coral reefs to local fifth graders. The students enjoyed the talk and then participated in discussions on how humans impact reefs.
