Conducting scientific research to support sustainable fishing, farming, aquaculture and renewable energy.
The choices we make--how we grow our food, fish our oceans and get and use energy--matter. Global challenges of climate change, population growth, pollution and loss of biodiversity call for new approaches in the way we manage our natural resources.
Since 2008, Coonamessett Farm Foundation (CFF) has conducted independent, scientific research to help our region's fishing, farming, aquaculture and renewable energy communities prosper and grow in a responsible and sustainable way. We invite you to learn about our work.
RESEARCH IN THE SCHOOLS
CFF's “Turtle Tagging Project: Tracking Loggerheads in the Atlantic Ocean" gives high school science students the opportunity to participate in an ongoing research project on the protected loggerhead sea turtle.
Students will "adopt" a turtle in CFF's 2019-2020 studies to monitor its location, habitat, foraging behavior and more. They'll apply STEM concepts learned in the classroom to an active research study.
