Our Coral Reef Educator on the Water (CREW) program is still running and we have the privilege of having Jim Evans on board with us. Jim is from the Washington D.C. area and works for School Without Walls; a high school that provides students with learning opportunities around the city and outside the classroom.
Since he has been with us in Rangiroa we have kept Jim very busy. Already he has been in the water learning about different aspects of coral reef ecology. He is also learning about all of the different research projects that we have going on during this mission. On top of all of the coral reef research, he also is learning about the Golden Shadow and what it takes to operate a ship of this size.
Jim is going to take what he learns with us and use it to develop new activities for teaching lessons about coral reef ecology.
