PROGRAMME: Summer Coral Reef Internships in Marine Ecology & Conservation

4 Transferable Undergraduate/Graduate Credits - Rutgers University Institute
of Marine & Coastal Sciences



The Central Caribbean Marine Institute, Little Cayman



31st May - 17th June, 2015



CCMI and Rutgers University invite students to apply for our Coral Reef
Internship programme. Participants will learn about principles of tropical
ecology, sustainability and management, through a combination of fieldwork
and lecture series. Students will finally develop and conduct a field
research project with a principal investigator relating to coral reef
ecosystems in the Caribbean. These projects will be developed into a joint
research poster that may be published or presented at a national or
international conference. Students are also engaged in data collection as
part of 15 years of active research by CCMI at one of the world's most
beautiful coral reef systems surrounding Little Cayman and the Bloody Bay
Marine Park. 



Applications should be received no later than March 1st. Registration is
limited so early application is encouraged. Scuba divers are encouraged to
apply, but non-certified participants are also accepted.



Undergraduate and graduate course credit is offered through the Rutgers
University Institute of Marine & Coastal Sciences and the Rutgers Study
Abroad programme. Credits are transferable. All registration requirements
and payment for this course must be processed through Rutgers Study Abroad
programme. More information on the course can be found at the Rutgers Study
Abroad website
