Earlier this week we visited the turtle hospital to learn about how sea turtles are rescued, medically aided, and rehabilitated for return to the ocean. Very inspirational and encouraging! Marine biology students have also been working on a couple of projects throughout the week–a habitat study and an independent project of their choice.
Returning marine biology students along with many science instructors and adult chaperones received the opportunity to learn about the Coral Reef Restoration Project taking place in Key Largo. A former Goshen High School graduate, Alex Neufeld, lead our group in learning about coral restoration and took us out into open water to look at the coral nursery.
