From monitoring sea turtles to studying coral reefs, scientists in this national park are making new discoveries and doing their part to protect its ecosystem.  The Natural Laboratory: Scientists in National Parks series takes a look at the research and responsibilities of scientists working in U.S. national parks. Each photo-filled book explores the topography of the park, its natural resources, the specific projects that have been undertaken there and why these projects are significant.
