Tucker is Following Me

FIU Marine Sciences building.












We posted recently on the journey of sea turtle Tucker, who swam to Abaco from
Bermuda.   Now check out his most recent travels….

From South Abaco, Tucker checked out the Berry Islands and then came into
Biscayne Bay (~ 10 day travel time from Sandy Point to North Miami – let me
know if you want to raw kmz file).   He was literally just a couple of hundred
meters from our lab on the Bay – I could have seen him from my lab.  A little
too much of a coincidence if you ask me…..

About the Author:

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.
