Marine Resources Development Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization, created in 1970 with the goal of developing a better understanding of earth's marine resources. It has evolved into an organization with both an educational and scientific focus. Since 1985, nearly 5,000 students each year have been introduced to the ocean through our MarineLab STEM education programs. We focus on connecting students with active research projects through our partnerships with researchers and citizen science opportunities. The longest-continually-running undersea habitat, which is used for science and educational purposes, is on our lagoon floor.
