The Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island (CRESLI) on Long Island, New York prides its expertise in marine mammal science, environmental sciences, education, conservation with the goal to conduct research, provide educational experiences and promote conservation of coastal ecosystems.
Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island (CRESLI)
The Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island, was founded in the summer of 1996 by a group of experts in marine mammal science, environmental sciences, education and conservation. Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island was formed for the purposes of conducting research, providing educational experiences and promoting conservation of coastal ecosystems.
Research and education are inextricably linked in all Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island activities. As such, Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island actively seeks cooperative alliances with researchers, educational institutions, and the participation of the general public. Many of the cetacean research projects, for example, utilize public whale watch cruises as a platform for collecting data and educating the public at the same time.
Commercial fishermen and pleasure boaters have also been enlisted to provide sighting information used in population and distribution studies, as well as assisting in the rescue of stranded and entrapped animals. This public participation has not only led to the finding that Long Island's coastlines provide a critical habitat for juvenile loggerhead, Kemp's ridley and green sea turtles, but has also fostered greater awareness and appreciation of these animals and their habitats among fishermen, boaters and the public.
Cooperative alliances with institutions such as Dowling College and others are entirely consistent with CRESLI's mission and purpose. The sharing of resources and coordination of activities, significantly enhances the opportunities for research and public education.
Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island's Objectives
To stimulate public interest in and to encourage conservation of coastal ecosystems through education programs for schools and public and private organizations
To foster a lifelong appreciation of and sense of stewardship towards coastal ecosystems through our programs, outreach activities and membership
To conduct research that will enable greater understanding of coastal ecosystems and to disseminate this information through scientific publications and conferences and meetings
