The Coral Reefs of Moorea Education website is an educational resource of the Moorea Coral Reef Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program
. This website was created in an effort to inform students and the public about the ocean, corals reefs, and the research of the MCR LTER program.
An exciting feature of this website is the Marine Life of Moorea Encyclopedia, where visitors can learn about the organisms that make up Moorea’s coral reef ecosystem. Our Lesson Plan Library contains FREE standards-based curricula available for download that focus on the coral reef ecosystem and current MCR LTER research. These hands-on activities are a great way for educators to teach Life Science and Investigation content standards in their classrooms. The Education Programs page highlights the various programs the MCR LTER program has to offer, while the Useful Links pages offers links to the websites of our partners and other valuable coral reef resources.
Many of the important discoveries made by MCR LTER scientists are the result of graduate student research. Our Graduate Student Research page describes some of the exciting projects being conducted by MCR LTER graduate students.
