MCERC Wish List
Scholarship funding helps relieve some costs for marine biology students
Our goal is to raise funding for a 33' Panga boat with a bimini top & 2 outboard Yamaha 150 motors or similar small vessel fit for research
Funding for a trailer to haul the research vessel
Funds will be put towards snorkeling gear to provide for MCERC team and students in field research
Rain gear is nice to provide for students and interns - working on the water isn't always sunny!

DSLR camera gear will be used to teaching students and interns many useful applications in the field
This funding will provide underwater housing for the DSLR camera with a dome
Tablets will be used for viewing photography in the field
Handheld GPS units (marine) will assist data collection
