Directory of Marine Education Resources. A Guide to Organizations that Provide Information on Marine Education.
This directory of organizations providing information on Marine Education is organized into four sections. Section I is an alphabetical listing of all organizations included in the directory, indicating services available from each organization (education materials, conferences/workshops, teacher training, library, technical assistance, speakers, publications, audio-visuals, field study/labs, and research/study vessels). Organizations are grouped alphabetically under different subject areas in Section II, including birds (waterfowl); conservation, management, protection, and public awareness; educational recreation; fishes (fisheries); inshore/inland ecosystems; K-12 and general education; marine mammals; offshore ecosystems; reptiles and amphibians; and scientific research. Section III contains a list of large governmental and private computer data base information centers and the environmental education coordinator for each state. Section IV is a state by state alphabetical listing of each organization in this sourcebook. Entries list address, contact person, focus of the group, and the services and materials available from each. Additional information is provided in four appendices, listing (1) toll-free numbers concerning everything from general information to whale stranding stations; (2) regional and other resource directories; (3) grants available from organizations and to whom they are made available; and (4) locations of United States National Marine Sanctuaries.
