Journalist Alanna Quillen from WPTV joined ANGARI Foundation President Angela Rosenberg and Director of Science Education & Advancement Amanda Waite onboard R/V ANGARI to talk about Lagoon Drift. Now in its third round in Palm Beach County, this citizen science project brings together local partner organizations to engage and involve the community in the study of marine debris as it moves in and around the Lake Worth Lagoon.

ANGARI Foundation operates an ocean science research vessel R/V ANGARI for charter out of our home port in West Palm Beach in Palm Beach County, Florida with the goal to advance the understanding of our oceans and educate and inform the public.
ANGARI Foundation has been recognized as an "Outstanding Partner" at the University of Florida Thompson Earth Systems Institute (TESI) first Annual Celebration & Awards Ceremony held at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, Florida.
ANGARI has supported Bahamas research since our inception but recent years have proven tough for researchers. We are excited to announce an amazing opportunity - our "Fuel Your Research" initiative, in support of marine science fieldwork in our home state of Florida.
