The principal efforts of the Florida Sea Grant College Program address statewide coastal research, extension/outreach and communications. All of this work can have a bearing on the work of marine educators, notably by providing science-based information about Florida coastal and ocean resources and systems. Although Florida Sea Grant does not have the funds to support a formal program in traditional marine education, we aim to assist educators and students in locating the best and most reliable information. This fact sheet identifies resources for teachers, youth program leaders, students, citizens and the media interested in learning more about Florida, national and global marine subjects. (Note that the version of this sheet on our homepage http://www.flseagrant.org has links to various websites, including those listed below.)
