Ocean First Institute in Belize

By OceanFirst on 9/12/16

Ocean First Institute’s mission has always centered around connecting students with the ocean as a way to generate passion about science and conservation. Through a partnership with Global Doing Good, OFI Director Dr. Mikki McComb-Kobza led a group of 16 students from across the country to Belize, where they worked alongside EcoMar and the Oceanic Society. During their stay, the students were afforded the opportunity to do hands-on research on manatee movement and sound, conch surveys, and swim up close with schools of nurse sharks. Read Mikki’s full and vibrant trip report on Ocean First Institute's website, and check out the video from their expedition above.
