Free Events Bring Coral Reef Science & Conservation to S. Florida Community

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – For decades, the researchers at Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography have been leading the way when it comes to marine sciences. From sharks and billfish to coral reefs to invasive species, researchers are involved in a myriad of areas of marine science discovery.

As part of those efforts, NSU believes the research and knowledge gained should be shared with the community. To that end, the 2016 Dive-In Lecture Series is here. These presentations are given by researchers on various marine science related topics. The lectures take

place at 6 p.m. at NSU’s Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center Building on the ocean campus of the Halmos College, 8000 N. Ocean Drive (in John U. Lloyd State Park in Hollywood.) This season’s lectures have been scheduled:

Wednesday, March 16th
Southeast Florida Action Network (SEFAN) – How You Can Get Involved
, by Kelly Montenero, M.S., National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coral Management Fellow, Coral Reef Conservation Program, Florida Department of Environmental Protection

Tuesday, April 19th
Romance on the Reef: When Threatened Coral Species Mate
, by Nicole D. Fogarty, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, NSU Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography

The lectures are free and open to the entire South Florida community. Not only is it a way to learn more about our oceans and marine science, but it’s a great opportunity to visit NSU’s Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center building, located on the Halmos College ocean campus.

Light refreshments follow each presentation. The series is funded, in part, by a grant award from Mote Marine Laboratory’s Protect Our Reefs Grant Program. The grant is funded by proceeds from the sale of Florida’s Protect our Reefs specialty license plate.

While registration is not required, space is limited and these lectures usually fill up quickly. More information can be found online (www.nova.edu/ocean/divein) or via e-mail (dive-in@list.nova.edu).
