Our Study

Connecticut's coast provides food, jobs, and recreational activities. Yet, the coasts are under threat from pollution, altered land use, and climate change. Research has shown that informed citizens are more likely to protect a resource compared to citizens who have no knowledge of the topic. Teaching students coastal literacy will be vital for protection and conservation of the coastal resources in Connecticut.
