Cruising for Conservation: Science Aboard the Carnival Cruise Line -- NEW DATE May 14

Course Description:

As traditional sources of support for marine scientific research continue to decline, scientists must look for new ways to continue their studies—even if this means setting sail with several thousand tourists aboard a floating hotel. James Lindholm’s passion for research has taken him around the globe, from the Great Barrier Reef, to the Indian Ocean, to the Red Sea and beyond—and now includes annual research trips to the Caribbean aboard Carnival cruise ships. Join him as he reveals a fascinating discovery of fish working together to find food in a way that can enhance the local diversity on coral reefs.
