Tanks in Schools

program director speaks on "rescuing the reefs"

Larry Flint was a featured speaker at the TedxWilliamsport event on October 24, 2012. His talk was on the relationship aquarists have with coral reefs and how we can work to rescue the reefs.

Our society's Tanks in Schools program is at the forefront of reef education in classrooms with our sustainable reefs. Read more here.
