Oceanography Camp for Girls 2021 participants became oceanographers for the day, learning and gaining experience with a variety of oceanographic tools and techniques as they studied Tampa Bay from onboard R/V ANGARI.
After missing 2020 reef surveys due to COVID-19, Perry Institute for Marine Science scientists were finally able to return to Grand Bahama Island and the Abaco island chain to assess reefs for signs of Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD) infection and recovery.
ANGARI Foundation worked with FAU’s Elasmobranch Research Lab to create its second Generation Ocean film, Generation Ocean: Sharks.
Scientists, an underwater cinematographer, and ANGARI Foundation teamed up to obtain high resolution video of a great hammerhead shark for the purpose of creating 3D models that can be used for science, education and public outreach.
Researchers came aboard R/V ANGARI for a full day of collecting surface water samples in West Palm Beach, Florida. This expedition allowed the research team to test methods and train for their upcoming expedition to the Southern Ocean.
After Category 5 Hurricane Dorian barreled through the Bahamas in September 2019, researchers from Perry Institute for Marine Science and partner organizations surveyed reef sites in the affected areas of Grand Bahama Island and Abaco.
Researchers conducted Atlantic and Gulf Rapid Reef Assessments (AGRRA) at several dive sites throughout the Abacos and Northwest Bahamas, including some new survey sites that have never been explored before.
Participants in the 2019 Oceanography Camp for Girls became oceanographers for the day, exploring and implementing numerous scientific techniques to study the marine world while onboard R/V ANGARI.
For two days, an army of ocean lovers set out into the ocean to actively restore coral reefs. Recreational scuba divers joined experienced coral restoration practitioners from the Coral Restoration Foundation™ (CRF) to physically outplant critically endangered corals onto degraded reefs. ANGARI Foundation joined these efforts as an Ecosystem Sponsor for the event, and R/V ANGARI served as a dive platform and the primary vessel for transporting corals between nursery and planting sites.
Youth and mentors from the Tri-City Trailblazers team gained hands-on experience with marine science field work led by FIU scientists onboard R/V ANGARI.
