Unique coral reef education pilot program to be conducted in the Bahamas
Date:4/27/2010

LANDOVER, MDStarting Saturday, May 1, in Nassau, Bahamas, the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation (Living Oceans Foundation), in partnership with the Harvard Medical School Center for Health and the Global Environment and the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation (BREEF), will conduct an intensive four-day education program focused on the Bahamas' coral reef ecosystems. All funding for this program will be provided by the Living Oceans Foundation as a pilot project for the education component of the Foundation's Global Reef Expedition: Science Without Borders program, which will take place from 2011 through 2014.

"We selected Nassau for our pilot education project because the government of the Bahamas, in association with the Bahamas National Trust and The Nature Conservancy, has embarked on a plan to form a national network of marine reserves to ensure the sustainable protection of marine biodiversity for future generations," said Captain Philip G. Renaud, Executive Director of the Living Oceans Foundation. "The Foundation hopes to contribute to this effort by the Bahamian government to preserve and protect the country's coral reefs by interactively engaging both teachers and students in coral reef ecosystem research and improving their knowledge of coral reefs so they can directly contribute to coral reef conservation initiatives."

The project will include components for educators, as well as high school, junior high, and college students, focused on coral reef conservation. Teachers will participate in a PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) Skin Diver certification course followed by in-water field work at nearby coral reefs. They will also certify in the Project AWARE Coral Reef Conservation specialty. The Project AWARE Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to conserving underwater environments through education, advocacy, and action.

On Sunday, May 2, the newly certified
