sr-seagrass-projectOur Marine Biology seniors are learning about biodiversity and succession among encrusting organisms in Santa Rosa Sound. They are currently recording data (% coverage, size, organisms) from 5 gallon buckets that were deployed in seagrass beds in the Sound over several months. This data may be included in a final report supporting a larger regional project, “Roadblocks to Seagrass Recovery”. We’re excited about the part our students are playing in this environmental study.  For more information on what we’re studying in this unit, visit http://myfwc.com/research/habitat/seagrasses/projects/
