Project leader Ben Russell (back to
camera) educates citizens about seagrass ecology at the Seagrass Awareness Festival held in Gulf Breeze, Florida, on March 27, 2004.
Participants waded into the bay to gather sea life in nets and
transferred the specimens to wading pools where Russell and other
volunteers would conduct marine life talks. The animals and plants
collected were later released.
