Our 2009-2010 Marine Biology crew has been selected and is ready to go. This will be our second group to work within our online network here at SaintJoe H2O
. After a summer of reflection and innovation... this site will certainly become even more important as we go forward with our studies. This will also be the first group to sail & explore the reefs of the lower Florida Keys (as opposed to Andros Is., Bahamas) during our Spring field study. This switch will give us- a different look at the overall region, a set of veteran sailboat captains who are familiar with (and committed to) our mission, a much more economically feasible field study, etc.
Turnout for the program this year was really super with exactly 30 applicants. As you know, we only have room to accept 18 students, so we also have the challenge of selecting a dynamic group. Selection for the final four or five spots was particularly difficult. These students are coming to the program with a ton of academic accomplishments already. Join me in welcoming them...
The Marine Biology class of 2009-2010 is:
Teachers for the 2010 field study are:
