Selbyville resident Molly Serfass, a master’s degree student in the Advanced Inquiry Program from Miami University’s Project Dragonfly, will soon travel to Australia to study coral reef ecology and the conservation of marine systems along the Great Barrier Reef, the university announced this week. Serfass works as an aquarist and naturalist at Cape Henlopen State Park.
