An Afternoon Among Manatees: International Students Explore HBOI

Shelby Fontana (lk)
What do clownfish breeding, green house grown coral and submersibles have in common? They can all be found at Florida Atlantic University’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. This past Friday, junior Edward Wei and Mrs. Fontana were treated to a VIP tour of the facility, as a result of Edward’s People's Choice award for the Ocean Science Art Contest—a contest open to students in grades 6-12 from Indian River County and St. Lucie County.  Edward’s illustration of a manatee wearing a spacesuit entitled When the Temperature Change Becomes too Erratic, is a poignant depiction of the effects of global warming on manatees. Along their tour, the two were delighted to catch glimpses of the massive, yet docile sea cows—the gentle giants were a definite highlight of the day!  #PiratePride #howSESlearns #globaloutlook
