This lecture is a part of Manatee Lagoon’s Manatee Master Lecture Series presented on the first Sunday of the month from May to October 2019. Join us as Manatee Lagoon’s Manatee Masters, our docents who are all Florida Atlantic University students, share highlights of their respective fields of study.
This month: Manatee Master and FAU graduate student Rachel Shanker will talk about the history of the Blue Heron Bridge, located in Riviera Beach, Florida. Rachel will discuss what animals can be found under the Blue Heron Bridge and what underwater surveys can tell us about fish diversity and seasonality. She will also explain her research findings and give insight on what we can do to better protect this unique marine environment.
