You already know about the beauty of coral reefs, but have you ever wondered why coral is so important? What changes in coral reefs at night? What threatens coral reefs? What organisms live near coral reefs? And what exactly is coral? These are a few of the questions we will answer in this six-week summer workshop!
We’ll explore what coral is and how it creates such a diverse ecosystem full of both vertebrates and invertebrates. Our class will also introduce several ecological concepts to help illustrate the diversity of tropical coral reef ecosystems. Our class will wrap up by discussing how human activities are threatening coral reefs and what changes can be made to further protect these ecosystems.
Join us this summer to explore tropical coral reef ecosystems!
