Who we are:
The Marine Ecology and Biology Student Association (MEBSA) of San Diego State University, is based at the Coastal and Marine Institute Laboratory (CMIL) in Point Loma. MEBSA is a student-run organization that strives to foster a cohesive and supportive community among SDSU students and faculty.

What we do:
The broader goal of MEBSA is to raise awareness about current research and conservation issues in marine science. We work to communicate these issues to the public through education and outreach activities.
With the collaboration of students and faculty of SDSU, MEBSA is organizing the sixth annual Marine Science Day at the Coastal and Marine Institute Laboratory (4165 Spruance Road) on March 19, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The purpose of the event is to showcase current research at SDSU, the facilities at the laboratory, and to educate the public about marine ecology, climate change, and conservation initiatives. This event is family friendly and open to the public—we encourage you to attend!
How you can help:
Throughout Marine Science Day, educational activities will be organized by participating lab groups, which allow the groups to demonstrate their research and related topics in marine science. Additional interactive activities such as touch tanks, games, SCUBA gear demonstrations, lab tours, and fish printing will be accessible to event attendees.
MEBSA is counting on its alumni, past event attendees, and community members to support Marine Science Day. Your tax-deductible gift of any amount will help cover material costs associated with event activities that engage and educate the public. Additional funds raised will go towards MEBSA’s educational and outreach activities in the community.
