The Marine and Coastal Ecology Research Center’s Board of Directors oversee the global operations of the coastal center. They are positioned to assure the administration, faculty, and staff are infused with support and expertise needed to continually improve how we participate in conservation initiatives.
MCERC strives to offer outstanding educational programs and cutting edge scientific research. Support for operations is welcomed from volunteers and financial donors who understand the importance of marine and coastal conservation.
Sharing information is critical to the success of MCERC’s goals and to the people we work so hard to support through our programs.
We eagerly participate in outreach programs, develop opportunities for citizen scientists, create internships and seminars in our online platforms to reach as far as possible across the globe.
The science team distributes information gleaned from research projects via peer reviewed publications, professional conferences, and outreach opportunities.
All program participants are mentored into being ambassadors for conservation so that they can continue to share the science that is so important to the future of healthy marine ecosystems.
