Last semester interns researched mineral and chemical sunscreens to help make informed decisions of the efficacy of human impact on our coral reefs. Pretty interesting think about it

I signed up too! Love the idea of the institute partnering with schools. Making kids aware and getting them involved is super-important!

I wasn’t aware there was such an organization. I liked the adopt a coral program and the different levels of sponsorship. It was also very said to read that a new disease has wiped out 50 % of the coral reef tract in Florida.
