Ales and Wild Tails: Saving Coral Reefs
September 12, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Please join us on September 12 as the Center for Biological Diversity and Friends of the Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges team up with The Ale and the Witch to bring you environmental education, conversation and beer!
We’ll be in the plaza, and this month’s event will feature a presentation by Mike Terrell, Director of Husbandry at The Florida Aquarium. Mike’s talk will cover the cutting-edge work the Florida Aquarium is doing in the lab and in the field to protect and restore coral reefs.
Mike has been working to conserve aquatic environments for over 20 years. He started his career as a scientific diver in college, exploring shipwrecks in the Florida Keys and assessing them as artificial reefs. He earned his scuba instructor credentials after leaving college and helped open the underwater world to hundreds of kids and adults. Since moving to Tampa in 2002, he has held numerous positions at The Florida Aquarium including Animal Programs Biologist, Water Quality Biologist, Dive Training Supervisor, Dive Safety Officer and his current position, Director of Husbandry.
This event is free, and the beer is affordable and delicious (check out the Ale and the Witch’s website: http://thealeandthewitch.com/).
