   Hello Fellow Ocean Ambassadors,

   Do you know enthusiastic high school or college students interested in
   marine science?

   The [1]Marine science And Nautical Training Academy (MANTA) is a 501(c)(3)
   non-profit education and research organization founded by full-time research
   scientists at the Hollings Marine Laboratory, in Charleston, SC. Our mission
   is to provide high school and college students a unique opportunity to learn
   about the marine environment, and participate in marine science research and
   conservation projects. We are [2]Now Accepting High School Applications and
   [3]College Applications for next summer’s [4]Field Studies in Coral Reef
   Biology courses, in the British Virgin Islands!

   The program provides an intensive, experienced-based field study program in
   fundamental  and applied marine science. Students will live on a large
   catamaran  sailboat  in the British Virgin Islands for two weeks while
   learning marine science, and practical skills used in the field like SCUBA
   diving,  sailing,  and  seamanship of a research vessel.  Lectures and
   experiential  learning  are  used  to  teach students about coral reef
   ecosystems, as students develop and test their own hypotheses by designing
   and executing short field experiments. The course is taught by faculty at
   the College of Charleston and other marine scientists from our floating
   classroom and research platform.

   Visit  our website for examples of [5]What We Research as well as more
   details about the [6]High School Programs (June 15-29 and July 10-24, 2017)
   and  our  [7]College of Charleston affiliated [8]College Programs (May
   29-June12 and July 27-August 10, 2017).

   Please forward this message to interested students, have them identify a
   teacher reference, and submit a free quick online application for either
   [9]High School or [10]College.  Email melannie.bachman at manta-online.org for
   more detailed information about the syllabus, itinerary or enrollment.

   Thank you!
