Event description

Description

Join us for a guest lecture from Dr. Monica Wilson of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative to learn about the latest oil spill science and how oil spills affect the Tampa Bay area and Florida. The presentation will be followed by an Q&A.

Dr. Wilson works with Florida Sea Grant in St. Petersburg, FL as a member of the Gulf of Mexico Research Intiative (GoMRI) outreach team. Her role is to transfer information between GoMRI oil spill scientists and coastal stakeholders. The oil spill science outreach's program's focus is on the two-way transfer of information between the people whose livelihoods depend on the health of the Gulf of Mexico or who are involved in the protection and management of Gulf of Mexico coastal and marine resouces; and the GoMRI scientists, administrators and board of directors. Wilson holds both a Ph.D. and a M.S. from the University of South Flordia College of Marine Science, University of South Florida and a B.S. in Marine Science and Computer Science from Eckerd College.

This lecture is recommended for ages 15+

This program is being hosted by the Friends of Pinellas Master Naturalists in cooperation with UF/IFAS Extension Pinellas County Sustainable Floridians program.
