Areas of Focus and Program Topics for Ocean Explorers Discovery Programs and Expeditions

When building an Ocean Explorers Program, groups can choose from multiple areas of study. We offer programs focused on ocean literacy, marine conservation, and REEF core program areas. Whether you are interested in booking an In-Person Workshop, a Virtual Workshop, or Expedition, REEF Education Staff will work with you to develop the perfect schedule to fit the interests, experience levels, and backgrounds of the participants. Check out our Program Topics below and let us know what areas of study best suit your group.
