Conservation Meeting to Restore Old Tampa Bay

You might have heard that Old Tampa Bay needs help… While the rest of Tampa Bay is one of the few international examples of a urbanized coastal ecosystem in recovery, the northwestern part of the bay experiences recurring summertime algae blooms and seagrass losses.
With the help of an actionable science planning grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute and the Tampa Bay Estuary Program are taking a closer look at how future projects to restore the natural flow of water and increase filter feeding shellfish might play a part in reducing harmful algae blooms in this part of the bay.
Join us for a kick-off workshop Nov. 16 at 1:30 p.m. to explore the challenges facing Old Tampa Bay, learn more about the actionable science grant project, and participate in a facilitated discussion about what we can do to get this part of the bay back on track.
Agenda Forthcoming
