Coastal Lecture Series
About the Event
Marine Megafauna Health Assessments: Insights into Marine Ecosystem Health
Dr. Annie Page-Karjian, Assistant Research Professor & Clinical Veterinarian, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute
See how sea turtles, dolphins, and whales are affected by harmful algae blooms, pollution, contaminants, and infectious diseases. By studying the health of marine wildlife, researchers are able to get a finger on the pulse of the health of the ocean and coastal waterways like the Indian River Lagoon.
This is a free, ZOOM-based lecture. Space is limited and preregistration is required.
Join us every Tuesday evening, from January 5th through March 9th, as we use Zoom to stream world-class live lectures right into the comfort of your home. These free lectures will keep you connected with science and the environment, even though COVID-19 has temporarily suspended our traditional in-person get togethers. You will experience the same fantastic caliber of speakers that you’ve come to expect from the Coastal Lecture Series, but without the added risk of gathering in a social setting. Last year’s Coastal Lecture Series broke our all-time attendance record, with more than 1,700 guests in attendance. By using technology to reach a broader audience, we hope to see even more of you as regulars in our “virtual audience” this year.
