NDP Marine Biology Students in Key Largo

Earlier this month, marine biology students from NDP headed to Key Largo to five days of scientific study and aquatic exploration. During the trip, the students studied seagrass beds, mangroves, and coral reefs to take water-quality samples and research the area’s biodiversity.

A clean-up effort resulted in the removal of seven pounds of marine debris from the mangroves, and while snorkeling in Banana Reef, students swam with sea turtles, sharks, and stingrays. As they learn more about this watery ecosystem, they are helping to advance the call to care for God’s creation.
