CEI promotes ‘the conservation of the tropical marine and coastal ecosystems by facilitating the research of resident and visiting scientists, supporting the education of students at all levels, and spurring outreach efforts to enhance the environmental awareness of local and global communities.’ Students of all ages gain experience regarding conservation, sustainability, and local ecosystems. They collaborate with world-class scientists, doing substantive research, eg. tagging nurse sharks, sea turtle research, all aimed at a better understanding of the environment and how to protect it.
