In a world approaching a population of eight billion, only a few thousand highly people work in the marine sciences. But the importance of their work far exceeds their numbers as their study of the world’s oceans is becoming more widely recognized and appreciated every day. At LUMCON, our faculty and students work in Louisiana’s unique natural environment with colleagues who share a passion for the ocean and all it has to offer.

- To collegiate students from throughout Louisiana and the United States, we offer a varied and unique series of programs that focus on the scientific examination of Louisiana’s unique Gulf Coast environment.
- Through camps and field trips each year, we offer thousands of Louisiana elementary and secondary students a glimpse at Louisiana’s incomparable coastal ecosystems.
