About This Activity

For teens ages 15 - 18 Join Sanibel Sea School in the Bahamas as we immerse ourselves in one of Earth’s most diverse and spectacular ecological systems: the coral reef. For one week we will set up residence at the Forfar Field Station on Andros Island, the largest Bahamian island. With world-class reefs as our classroom, our laboratory, and our backyard, students will identify and study reef inhabitants and learn to interpret their discoveries alongside coral reef ecologists. Ultimately, students will put their new-found knowledge to work collecting and analyzing survey data on fish and invertebrate populations that will be used to better understand and effectively conserve this important ecosystem. Students will earn community service hours for these surveys ‒ and what better community to serve than a coral reef? This summer, dive headfirst into the dynamic world of marine science. You will gain new insights into the field of marine ecology and make a valuable contribution to coral reef research and conservation, all in a setting as breathtaking as it is biologically rich
