OCTOBER LUNCH & LEARN: FL HORSESHOE CRAB WATCH PROGRAM
Join us for our Lunch & Learn Webinar, “Florida Horseshoe Crab Watch – Linked with Limulus” with Holly Abeels! In 2015, FWC FWRI and the University of Florida launched a citizen science initiative which trained volunteers to assist biologists in surveying, tagging and resighting Florida’s nesting horseshoe crab populations using a standardized scientific protocol. The program has been so successful that FWC expanded their efforts to a statewide level, which included Brevard County in 2019. This presentation will talk about the importance of this program, what kinds of data citizen scientists collect for this program, and how you can get involved.
The seminar will end with a live Q&A session, but we also recommend that participants to please email any questions you might have that relate to this topic to the MRC’s Nicole Broquet at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 2nd.
This is a free virtual event, but you must register to receive the zoom link and login information. If you are unable to register, we will be live streaming it through the MRC’s Facebook page!
Register today and be ready to wear your comfy pants, have your lunch, and learn from home!
