“Wild Chronicles” Will Feature UVI Professor’s Research

The research of University of the Virgin Islands Biology Professor Dr. Donna Nemeth will be in the national spotlight on Wednesday, July 30, with the broadcast of a National Geographic public television series “Wild Chronicles.” The episode features a “Secrets of the Coral Reef” story that discusses Dr. Nemeth’s research, which was conducted over a three-year period at the UVI St. Thomas campus MacLean Marine Center and the Virgin Islands Environmental Resource Station (VIERS) on St. John. Although the show is not currently scheduled to air on WTJX-Channel 12 in the Virgin Islands, it is expected to eventually run on the MSNBC cable channel and to become available as a “Wild Chronicles” podcast. Those podcasts are available at nationalgeographic.com/podcasts/shorts.html and from the iTunes Store.
