Final Project Abstract _ Sarah Van Cleve

The creation of an underwater exhibit in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary will attract visitors and therein help educate the public on the fragile condition of coral reefs locally and worldwide. Not only will participants be educated during their time within the underwater habitat, forty feet below the surface, but they will be learning as they SCUBA dive down to the habitat and back up to the surface. While they descend to the habitat the participants will see the severely damaged coral reefs as they are today and then that will be contrasted when the participants see coral reefs as they could still be with careful conservation and restoration efforts.
