Teacher volunteers are trained in reefkeeping and share their knowledge with young people every day. Read more about the Tanks in Schools program by clicking the link near the top of the page.

Tanks in Schools

program director speaks on "rescuing the reefs"

Larry Flint was a featured speaker at the TedxWilliamsport event on October 24, 2012. His talk was on the relationship aquarists have with coral reefs and how we can work to rescue the reefs. Not only can we serve to educate people about the fragile nature of reefs, we can even create entire reef aquariums without removing life from the ocean. Our society's Tanks in Schools program is at the forefront of reef education in classrooms with our sustainable reefs. Read more here.
