Sea Grant agent Savanna Barry helps train volunteers to survey horseshoe crabs in Florida’s Big Bend, giving scientists more insight into population size and health.
Hannah Brown, a Ph.D. student studying interdisciplinary ecology at the University of Florida, has been named the first Nature Coast Biological Station/Florida Sea Grant Scholar.
With more than 900,000 registered vessels, Florida ranks among the nation’s top three boating states. However, boaters may pose a risk to the fragile seagrass meadows that lie along Florida’s coast.
In her position, Savanna Barry will implement programs for Florida Sea Grant that promote the sustainable use of natural resources along the state’s Nature Coast.
