IGS and the University of Hawaii are teaming up to provide an on-going research/educational opportunity at one of the premier marine research locations in the United States. This is for interns who are looking for exposure to leading marine scientists and an atmosphere conducive to marine education.
PART ONE: Work with leading scientists on a coral identification and health project. Collect and sort corals and look for key indicators about reef health. Results will be catalogued and data entered to record the changing composition of the reef.
PART TWO: Interns will be work with staff on a marine education project. You will learn about the different research being conducted by leading scientists on the island. Once you are well versed you will help educate school groups and even visiting professors on the history of the island and research there.
