Live Exploration To Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary

Apr 18, 2019

There's so much to learn about the natural world in Georgia. That's why we're sharing stories from our colleagues at GPB Education throughout the week with our Wild Georgia series.

Explore Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary in this 30-minute virtual field trip from GPB Education. This event was live streamed on May 10, 2017, from the University of Georgia's Marine Education Center and Aquarium in Savannah.

This unique experience teaches students about the animals that call Gray’s Reef home, how the seafloor serves as a habitat and ways they can help protect the reef from major threats. Join marine experts as they share the importance of their research and answer questions from the audience.
