Talking Red Tide | Michelle Johnson
February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Let’s talk Tides! Red Tide that is…
Anyone who lives and dives in Florida has been affected by the red tide. From the health-harmful affects that it carries, the way it travels, the wildlife devastation and the politics, this toxic algae has touched us all.
With the changes in weather patterns across the globe, Tampa Bay has also felt the shifts. We’ll spend the evening discussing the oceanic gyre system, how they are changing and why, and the effects we are seeing from those changes on a local and global level. We’ll talk about impacts to coral reef ecosystems, the red tide epidemic and whether or not “global warming” matters.
Come join us on Feb. 20 at 6:30 p.m. for an informal presentation from Michelle Johnson on the Red Tide and how it has affected us locally and globally. Ms. Johnson is a regulatory compliance professional with almost 20 years of experience maintaining, assessing and enforcing federal and state compliance regulations. Food and appetizers will be provided as well as door prizes! Please RSVP for this event at 813-832-6669 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
