Using Marine Technology to Develop a Gulf Islands Marine Biology Education and Outreach Program

With the increase of human impacts on the ocean, more effective and engaging environmental education is needed to inspire action. The Galiano Conservation Association (GCA) aims to educate the public about marine conservation issues around Galiano island. The intern will help GCA to understand how to improve their marine education program, using underwater video technology to bring an audience to otherwise inaccessible environments. Once new programs are implemented, a plan for testing the efficacy of new programs will be developed. This will allow GCA to regularly evaluate its marine education programs and incorporate marine technology in the most effective way.
