Communicating corals and climate change in the Pacific Islands
Earlier this month IAN and COSEE Coastal Trends staff, in partnership with the National Park Service Pacific Island Network, launched the coral reef and climate change scientist-educator team. The team, based in Volcano, Hawai'i, will draw on the diverse skills and backgrounds of its members to create informative and engaging materials that communicate the unique features of coral reefs within the Pacific Island Network. Team members, from across the Pacific Islands of Hawai'i and American Samoa, represent the University of Hawai'i at Hilo, the Pacific Internship Programs for Exploring Science, and Kahuku High School. Over the course of six weeks, the team will design hands-on and virtual activities, create conceptual diagrams, and develop classroom lesson plans that draw on traditional knowledge and current NPS research.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
