Participate and Learn with the Palm Beach Zoo's Florida Hawksbill Project.
Spend the day learning and diving with Nikole Ordway and Larry Wood as he captures and studies the Florida Hawksbill Turtle. Learn what the Hawksbill contributes to our knowledge about the ecosystem of our local reefs. Understand where they come from and where they are going and how far they range.
Join us at the Riviera Beach Force-E 155 East Blue Heron Blvd. at 10:00 AM. We’ll break for lunch about noon and be at the boat in the Lake Park Marina by 1:00 PM for a two-tank dive with Larry Wood for some practical experience.
The cost of the event is $110 and the proceeds will be donated to the Florida Hawksbill Project. The price includes Turtle Awareness class session, boat trip, and snacks on the boat. Sign up for this event online below....MUST complete the payment to hold your spot on the dive.
This two tank dive and academic program will allow participants to watch the Florida Hawksbill Project in action. We will have activities for each person underwater. If you have an underwater camera, make sure to bring it for some of the activities we have planned. No camera, no worries, bring an underwater dive slate for interactive activities. Nikole will be taking pictures and making them available to everyone at no cost.
