Students participate in coral reef restoration in Bali, Indonesia

A group of SPU students, led by Professors of Biology, Dr. Tim Nelson and Dr. Janet Bester-Meredith, are participating in a new Global Studies program in Bali, Indonesia. In this three-week study abroad program, students are learning from Indonesian conservationists about efforts to restore coral reef habitats damaged by climate change and other factors. Students have participated in SCUBA dives to collect and transplant new coral (as shown below), are analyzing data from ongoing studies, and are participating in cultural experiences during their trip.
