What: Citizen Scientist Project lecture

When: September 20 at 7 p.m.

Where: Community Center Lighthouse Room

The Citizen Scientist Project hosts a lecture Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Key Biscayne Community Center Lighthouse Room.

The lecture is on “Caribbean Coral Restoration: Giving Coral Reefs a Future,” and is presented by Margaret Miller, Ph.D., Research Director for SECORE International.

Miller coordinates field research activities and currently leads the Acropora Recovery Implementation Team, which advices the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries on rebuilding self-sustaining coral populations as mandated in the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

She also advises graduate students as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and at Nova Southeastern University, where she serves as a reviewer for scientific journals and grant programs.

Dr. Miller earned an undergraduate degree from Indiana University and doctorate in Marine Ecology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She had a three-year post-doc at UM, and then worked as a Research Ecologist with NOAA Fisheries Southeast Science Center before going to SECORE.

The event is open to the public, and students are encouraged to attend with a parent or guardian. Space is limited, so register at the Community Center front desk.
