Marine Biodiversity Field Programs

The Coral Reef Ecology and Conservation program is comprised of snorkeling excursions to near shore and offshore reefs surrounding Puerto Rico. You will experience the relationship between organisms and oceanographic features through a series of visual scavenger hunts over reefs. Coral reefs play an important role in the marine environment. The beauty and diversity of inhabitants of the reefs attract snorkelers and divers creating challenges for management agencies to create policy allowing recreational and economic activity while protecting the inhabitants of the reefs.
