"Lights, Camera, Conservation - A Day of Estuarine Exploration at the Suncoast."
The Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida for Suncoast Youth Conservation Center, a 2019 Bay Mini-Grant winner, set out on a mission to immerse underserved youths in nature-based activities, successfully providing this experience to 624 students.
Our Bay Mini-Grant provided the equipment needed to craft these creative recap videos made by the students. Check out more Bay Mini-Grant features by clicking the link below.
In an effort to continue providing the educational and inspiring experiences their visitors love, the Florida Aquarium created SEA-SPAN: daily content from inside the aquarium in realtime via facebook livestreams. Check out what they've got so far by visiting their website or stop by their facebook page for a detailed schedule of streaming times.

TBEP's Water Quality Dashboard in the 2020 RStudio Shiny Contest
TBEP is using Shiny (a web development platform) to enhance access to data visualization and engage our partners with relevant scientific content to enhance decision-making for the protection of environmental resources. The 2020 RStudio Shiny contest provided an opportunity for science communicators around the world to highlight their work in a rapidly expanding virtual platform.
Ever wonder how a dredging project could improve water quality? Well, as Pinellas County began the "most important phase" of the Lake Seminole Restoration Project late last year, they leaned on dredging and its ability to remove about 900,000 cubic yards of organic sediment from the lake, hopefully bringing the lake to its healthiest state in decades.
