This is a capstone course involving both students and faculty in collaborative research. Students participate in a multifaceted on-going research project focused on how climate change affects coral reefs.

The course takes place on South Water Caye, a 12-acre Caribbean island surrounded by mangroves, tidal seagrass flats, and pristine coral reefs teeming with marine life located on the Belize barrier reef. Daily activities include laboratory research and snorkeling coral reefs. (Writing Encounter)(FEE)
