The RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program is headed to Science Online 2012, an annual gathering of scientists, science journalists, science educators, and bloggers from around the world! Director Dr. Neil Hammerschlag, as well as Ph.D. students Julia Wester, Austin Gallagher, and David Shiffman (who Science Online regulars know as WhySharksMatter from Southern Fried Science) will be headed up to Raleigh, NC in January, and we’re really excited! We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to the Science Online community.
The RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program is based at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, one of the nation’s elite marine biology labs. We are also affiliated with the Leonard and Jayne Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy. Our mission is to advance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) literacy and marine conservation by combining cutting edge research and outreach activities.
