Educator: Coral Reefs “Cities Under The Sea”

Richard Murphy is dedicated to sharing the wonders and value of nature with students and the public. His goal is helping people better understand how nature works, with a focus on ecological processes that are fundamental to all systems – marine, terrestrial and human. With this understanding, students and audiences explore how we can live more sustainably and gently on the planet.

This interdisciplinary and holistic approach is infused into all of the programs Richard creates. Because coral reefs are threatened and possess many parallels to human communities, Dr. Murphy has created a number of products and program that focus on reefs.
