Communicating the cultural and ecological importance of coral reefs
The COSEE Coastal Trends Coral Reef team has wrapped up the first phase of its project with the Pacific Island Network Inventory & Monitoring Program at the National Park Service. Their efforts culminated in a meeting with Park staff to review mock-ups of diagrams, games, activities, and videos created to help students learn about cultural and ecological importance of coral reefs in the Pacific Islands through inquiry and observation. Because it incorporates the ways in which the Hawaiian, Samoan, and Chamorro cultures are connected to corals, stewardship, and sustainability, this module will be unlike the others previously developed by Coastal Trends. The team is now working with web developer Adrian Jones to transform the mock-ups into interactive web pages.

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