The Reef Stewardship Foundation is happy to announce the start of a new partnership with Clear Lake High School in Houston, TX. Two weeks ago the classroom portion of our first project began with Aquatic Science teacher Ashley Poloha (pictured at left with RSF Executive Director Brian Plankis). Over 75 students are working together in small groups to investigate the environmental issues of overfishing and bycatch. The students will be working to survey members of their community on their knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to their issues. Students will be utilizing RSF supplied digital cameras and laptops to produce videos reporting on the results of their investigations and potential ways the residents of Clear Lake could help reduce the problem of overfishing and bycatch.
We will report back on the progress of the students and share their final videos with our membership on our website and at our annual meeting scheduled for May.
This project was made possible by a grant from the Columbus Zoo Foundation and donations from supporters of the Reef Stewardship Foundation. Your support is greatly appreciated.
