About the lab
Located at Duke University, the Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab (MGEL) applies geospatial technologies to issues in marine ecology, resource management and ocean conservation. With locations at both the main Durham campus of Duke and at the Duke Marine Lab on Pivers Island in Beaufort, North Carolina, the lab works with students and faculty across disciplines, from fieldwork to policy.
Innovations in animal tracking technology are changing the way we think about how the world’s oceans are connected, providing knowledge on the migratory connectivity of populations and species to inform worldwide conservation and sustainable use. An new study is available in Proceedings B on “The importance of migratory connectivity to global ocean policy,” co-led by…
The Duke University Marine Lab hosted a Girls Exploring Science & Technology (GEST) event on April 13th, 2019, where over 200 middle school girls from local, neighboring, and distant counties (even as far as Virginia!) came to learn and have fun with a broad range of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities.
