It has been an exciting week for the UCF MTRG. Our oceanic research (including our recently published drifter work) will be featured in an upcoming episode of the PBS series Changing Seas. The episode will air on Wednesday, June 17th at 8pm on WPBBT2. It will also be available online at www.changingseas.tv shortly thereafter. To watch the trailer, check out:
A HUGE thanks to the Florida Sea Turtle License Plate program. We received three grants from them this funding cycle! These include funding: (1) for a much-needed new boat (!!); (2) to continue satellite tracking male green turtles; and (3) to analyze and collect new data on the foraging ecology of nesting green turtle females on the Archie Carr NWR.
