Dear subscribers of the Coral Health and Monitoring Program List,
I am the president and founder of Project S.E.A.-LINK. We are a nonprofit
organization based in Maui, Hawaii, and our mission is to promote marine
Science, Education, and Awareness. Our goal is to provide a LINK between
students, teachers, scientists, the local community, the general public,
other nonprofit organizations, and governmental agencies.
I would like to invite the coral reef research community to participate
in the educational website I am currently developing. The site will be a
resource for students and teachers, and will feauture a section where
scientists and their work will be profiled. Students may write in
questions, and teachers will be able to download curricular materials
based on the researchers' work.
I would especially like to feature coral reef researchers' profiles on
the site. To become profiled, just answer some questions about your
career and philosophy about science via our questionnaire, and provide
photo(s). If you wish, you may also participate in other opportunities
such as a question/answer board or other more direct interactions with
students and science classrooms around the country.
The questionnaire and instructions are provided below. You may also write
to profiles at projectsealink.org to request PDF and Word versions.
If you have any specific questions, please send a message directly to me.
Thank you very much!
