About our lab
The RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program promotes conservation and scientific literacy by conducting cutting edge scientific research and providing innovative and meaningful outreach opportunities for students through exhilarating hands-on research and virtual learning experiences in marine biology. In 2013, we tagged and sampled over 300 sharks using our non-lethal catch and release sampling design. We also spoke in classrooms to over 500 students ranging from 1st grade to college, and took over 1,000 high school students out on the boat with us to learn about ocean conservation and help with our ongoing research.
