At Capital Coral R&R, we strongly believe that children and young adults hold the key to the future of our planet and its coral reefs. Through research and education, we provide them with unique opportunities to explore and appreciate the wonders of nature.
Our goal is to inspire their interest in scientific careers while fostering a deep connection with the environment. Join us at Capital Coral R&R as we empower the next generation to create a sustainable and thriving future. Together, we can make a difference.
College internships present an exciting opportunity for young adults to learn and grow while gaining real-world experience within our facility. Here, we believe in combining education with hands-on training, and that's exactly what our student interns get to enjoy.
They dive into individual research projects that match their availability, exploring restoration applied research, biomedical applications, and the world of drug discovery. It's an adventure that educates, empowers, and leaves a lasting impact.
