Our research center on Lee Stocking Island is located in a remote area of the Exuma Cays, and provides the ideal environment to observe, study, educate and inspire. The location was selected as a long term research site and field station for two reasons - its proximity to the U.S. and the incredible variety of untouched marine habitats that surround the island. Scientists can take a 10 minute boat ride east to explore deep water sea life off the Exuma Sound where the ocean floor plunges 3,000 feet, or a 10-minute boat ride west to the shallow water ecosystems of patch reefs.
The laboratory is one of the largest and most productive science field stations in the entire Caribbean region. And the field station is highly-regarded by the most esteemed research institutions in the U.S. and abroad.
