Google Hangout underwater with Brice Semmens

This webcast is part of the Grouper Education Program, an educational component of the Grouper Moon Project- a collaborative conservation program of Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) and the Cayman Islands Department of Environment studying Nassau Grouper (Epinephelus striates), an endangered species and an icon of the Caribbean coral reefs. The live-from-the-field session was broadcast from the Nassau Grouper spawning aggregation on the west end of Little Cayman to over a dozen schools and classrooms in the Cayman Islands, The Bahamas, and in the US. The one-hour chat features Grouper Moon scientist, Dr. Brice Semmens, diving on the aggregation site, and Grouper Moon educator, Todd Bohannon, topside. Brice answers questions from the students about Nassau Grouper, the importance of protecting their spawning sites, and the work being done as part of the Grouper Moon Project. Following the dive, Brice, Todd, and Dr. Christy Semmens from REEF answer additional questions. For further information about this project go to Hangout Grouper Moon Education Project
