Institute for Marine Sciences

Natural sights
nature, dolphins, marine science

In the past decade, Roatan Institute for Marine Science has established itself as a dedicated teaching institution. The facility is visited year-round by colleges, universities and high schools from abroad to study tropical marine ecosystems and the bottlenose dolphins housed at the facility. Many programs are for academic credit, some are in conjunction with other field research stations, and others are simply introductory courses to the ecology of coral reefs in the Caribbean.
