CIEE Bonaire has recently hosted a number of influential scientists at our public presentation series. Jennifer and Dr. Allen Collins visited us from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Jennifer introduced the audience to the various science education opportunities and resources available at the Smithsonian. Allen spoke about his research on medusozoan cnidarians, also known as jellyfish. Dr. Ester Peters followed us back to Bonaire after attending the Association of Marine Labs of the Caribbean Scientific Meeting in Curaçao along with the entire CIEE Bonaire teaching and research staff. She spoke about her research on coral disease and the potential for restoring Acropora spp. (staghorn and elkhorn) corals in the Caribbean.
