SETTING THE STANDARD FOR EXCELLENCE
For over 35 years, the Marine Extension Service has been serving the state and our coastal constituents. State funding supplemented with federal grant dollars has made our work possible. With declines in State and supplemental grant dollars, we now must look to other sources to help support our mission to provide research-based information, educational programs and technology transfer to sustain natural resources, increase coastal stewardship and help coastal communities improve their quality of life.
Here are some of the programs your gift will help support.
• Marine science camps for children
• Summer camps for the underserved
• Teacher workshops
• Aquarium operations
• Oyster habitat restoration
• Water quality monitoring
• Seafood technology training
• Recreational fishing education
• Commercial fishing education/support
• Invasive species monitoring
• Adult education
• Undergraduate/graduate studies
• Fishing gear research and design
• Ocean science literacy
• Fisheries management
• Seafood marketing
• Smart growth education
• Student internships
