The Sundt Seminar Hawaii trip video

Twelve New Mexico State University students traveled to Hawaii over spring break where they studied various aspects of climate change. The trip was part of the Sundt Honors Seminar course with NMSU Biology Regents Professor Michele Nishiguchi. The Hawaii excursion included lectures by University of Hawaii professors with expertise in various areas, and the students visited the State of Hawaii’s Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR), where coral restoration is being conducted. They also visited The Nature Conservancy, The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s Inouye Center and The Hawaiian Seafood Company’s fish auction. The students will present their research projects at the Undergraduate Research and Creative Arts Symposium Friday, April 29. Watch Video

NMSU biology Regents professor to lead Sundt seminar students on Hawaii research trip.
Many New Mexico State University students will probably spend their spring break next year in some tropical location, enjoying the sun and sand. One class of honors students will travel to Hawaii – not to bask in the tropical climate, but to learn about how changes to that climate are affecting corals and the other species that make up the island ecosystem. >> Read Press Release
