Mike Henley, aquarist at the Invertebrate exhibit at the National Zoo, has been captivated by the ocean and its creatures for many years. Mike has been a vital part of our field crew in the Caribbean since 2007 and most recently in Australia this past fall. As an active member of SECORE, Mike has worked on coral hubandry both in the field and his aquaria at the National Zoo. Naturally inclined towards outreach, Mike continually helps to spread the mission of the Reef Recovery Team both in formal and informal education programs at the National Zoo. Mike hope to deepen his involvement with Reef Recovery by pursuing a graduate degree in coral conservation.
