West Central Regional Update 10/26/14
This is Jaclyn updating you on things going on in our region. Two weeks ago we have the St. Petersburg Science festival and FWC’s Marine Quest. It was great to see FMSEA members out there. Overall they were both very successful events.
Next month the biggest ocean event of the year will be happening in St. Petersburg – the 2014 Blue Ocean Film Festival. If you haven’t checked out the schedule you can find it here: http://www.blueoceanfilmfestival.org/ (There is also a free app for smart phones).
Speakers include, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Fabien Cousteau, Celine Cousteau, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, Dr. Robert Ballard, Sir Richard Branson and many more.
There are also several workshops happening at the Florida aquarium in November: http://www.flaquarium.org/education-camps/school-programs/teacher-programs.aspx
Please let me know if I can share any of the great marine science work you are doing with our region! Also feel free to reach out to me if you need anything marine related.
