The Sarasota Environmental Aquatics (SEA) Team is a group of Sarasota County volunteers whose work has made positive impacts on our bays.
Whether they are seeding scallops or surveying seagrass, this team of energetic volunteers provides scientists with valuable information.
Seagrass is vital to maintaining healthy aquatic ecosystems, stabilizing shorelines and providing food and shelter for a variety of wildlife, including scallops, manatees and sea turtles.
The information gathered by seagrass survey volunteers allows scientists to better understand and manage these important ecosystems. Many volunteers find surveying seagrass fun, easy and rewarding.
