PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Students will be able to imagine themselves scuba diving in the coral reefs of Florida, Australia or Mexico as they meet with a marine educator in front of a Tropical Sharks habitat. In this program students will learn about the diversity of life that can be found in tropical waters, and how it is all connected through the delicate balance of food webs. They will also learn about important topics such as shark and turtle conservation, and the lion fish invasion of the east coast! Students will have the opportunity to discuss the animals they most want to learn about through a question and answer period at the end. With the incredible coral reef as their guide, students will see how tropical salt waters hold some of the widest diversity in the ocean, and are also some of the greatest at risk.
