About this project

As part of McLennan College's first international research team, I will be traveling to Roatan Honduras in May. While SCUBA diving on the local coral reefs, I will be documenting the spread of the invasive lionfish and the experience of the research team through out the trip. With the data I will have collectected, I plan to compile my research into a scientific paper, design a professional poster to present at a convention, and do my part to raise awareness of this particular invasive species. In addition, I hope to document the research team's process & unique experience while abroad!

FAQ

  • In addition to certification fees for SCUBA diving, the money will be used for equipment rentals, travel expenses, wetsuit purchase, documentary/film editing cost, and professional printing of scientific posters/photographs. ANYTHING HELPS, Really!
