Join Manatee Lagoon’s Manatee Masters and an expert speaker for a lecture to learn about a new topic each month! Advance registration is recommended, although not required. This helps Manatee Lagoon with tracking the number of visitors we receive and plan for seating.

This month: The Reef Institute’s Executive Director Leneita Fix will talk about the Florida Reef Tract which runs from Dry Tortugas National Park west of the Florida Keys to the St. Lucie Inlet in Martin County, Fla. At almost 360 miles long, it hails as the third largest barrier reef globally and the only reef tract of this kind off the coast of the United States. This system creates a barrier for the entire state of Florida in a variety of ways. Due to human impact and a disease attacking stony corals, the coral coverage has shrunk in recent years. It is estimated that as little as five percent of this system remains healthy. The Reef Institute has discovered healthy coral growing right here in Lake Worth Lagoon. Could it be that the secret to saving the reefs is right here in our own back yard? Come learn about the health of coral in Palm Beach County, what is happening in Lake worth lagoon and how you can help protect not only our coral, but our ocean at large!
