IRL Community Engagement Coordinator, Jessy Wayles, sits down with Brevard Zoo Conservation Manager Olivia Escandell and Marine Discovery Center Conservation Science Coordinator Tess Sailor-Tynes to chat about historic funding in support of the Indian River Lagoon. They both have many exciting projects underway such as seagrass restoration, building seagrass nurseries, shuck & share oyster and clam programs, and more. They dive into the details and explain how community collaboration and volunteer programs have had an impactful effect on seagrass restoration in the IRL.
