SFS creates transformative study abroad experiences through field-based learning and research. Our educational programs explore the human and ecological dimensions of the complex environmental problems faced by our local partners, contributing to sustainable solutions in the places where we live and work. The SFS community is part of a growing network of individuals and institutions committed to environmental stewardship.
SFS is working with the Turks & Caicos Islands (TCI) Department of Environment and Coastal Resources (DECR) and the National Park Service to develop management strategies to help conserve marine biodiversity and provide economic opportunities for island residents. With so many local residents dependent upon marine resources for their livelihood, along with increasing resource consumption by tourists, finding viable options for managing fisheries and conserving critical habitats, including coral reefs, is crucial.
