Coral List Colleagues:

Given the recent and on-going discussion of scientific communication and
public engagement, we thought it would be a good time to put a recent
creation up online.

Check it out- hopefully it will be useful in science classrooms!

It is called *The Story of Sharks* and is an attempt at providing accurate
and accessible information to the public about the issue of shark
conservation. We show it here at the Cape Eleuthera Institute and The
Island School in Eleuthera, The Bahamas regularly. It is one way to
introduce conservation issues, sharks, and the connections between
ecological, social, and environmental values.

History and Awards:

We hope you and your students enjoy it.
