Students enrolled in SEA Class C-303, Marine Biodiversity & Conservation, arrived on campus on March 14th. After a one-day delay due to a flight cancellation, they arrived in Key West on April 6th to begin their sea component aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer. They will sail the Cramer home to Woods Hole, scheduled to arrive on May 12th.

The program concludes with a capstone experience where students will share their scientific research and conservation strategies with experts in national and international marine conservation science and policy during a one-day professional symposium hybrid both online and on the SEA campus.
