DEEP Day

Thursday, May 3, 2018

Carol Morgan School hosted the 3rd annual Dominican Environmental Education Program (DEEP). DEEP is a collaboration of various schools working together in Santo Domingo to foster ecological awareness of ecosystems in the Dominican Republic and the human impact on these ecosystems. During the conference, students from CMS, Babeque, New Horizons, ABC, and Saint George presented their results on studies done on Rio Isabela, Rio Nizao, Fundación Grupo Puntacana, and nearby mangrove areas.  Student groups from Dominico-Americano and Saint Thomas also came to join in the event.

Various government and non-government organizations also came to present about what they are doing in the Dominican Republic and discussed possible solutions to problems facing the ecological health of the country. Groups who presented included Fundación Grupo Puntacana, Learning Streams International, The Nature Conservancy, CEBSE (Centro para la Conservación y Ecodesarrollo de la Bahía de Samaná y su Entorno), CIBIMA (Centro de Investigaciones de Biología Marina de UASD), and ANAMAR (Autoridad Nacional de Asuntos Marítimos).​​​
