Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "I enjoyed having the opportunity to listen to someone actually working out in the field. I have read about what is happening with coral reef restoration in Florida, but having Lindsey describe her experiences was illuminating and authentic. I also appreciated the balance between Lindsey and Bruce with relevant resources provided in real time as they were being discussed."
  • "Real science brought to us by an expert brought everything you read about coral reefs to life. Most interesting was to see how big mission iconic reefs is & how things can change if we all work together."
  • "The content was intriguing. This is an on-going environmental issue that needs to be taught to our future generations."

A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' account page for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.
