PROJECT TITLE: Eleuthera Island School Reef Ball Re-Training
LOCATION: Eleuthera, Bahamas
PROPOSAL DATE: School Year, 2006
TIMELINE: 1 week project
PROJECT AIMS: In conjunction with BREEF, a local Bahamas non-profit organization, in 2000 and again in 2003, The Reef Ball Foundation sent down teachers to the Eleuthera Island school to teach the students how to use Reef Ball molds to build artificial reefs for a variety of student created research projects. The Eleuthera Island School is a unique classroom where bright kids from around the world come to learn how to exist with nature and learn about the sea. This project aims to educate this year’s students as we have in the past.
BUDGET: $5,000 for two trainer and renewal materials.
