|Join Mote’s “Shark Lady” on Once-in-a-Lifetime |
Trip to the Red Sea
RSVP by Feb. 28 to Ensure Your Spot
Before Dr. Eugenie Clark earned world renown as the founding “Shark Lady” of Mote Marine Laboratory, she studied fishes in the Red Sea — where vibrant coral reefs entice divers from around the world and where Mote science is unfolding in exciting new ways today.
Dr. Crosby has worked closely with top Israeli and Jordanian researchers since 1994. He led Israeli and Jordanian partners in the Red Sea Marine Peace Park Cooperative Research, Monitoring and Management Program — an effort to protect coral reefs that support thousands of species in the Gulf of Aqaba. He is also a former chairman of the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation Board of Governors and has served on the Board since he was appointed by the U.S. State Department in 2002.
Dr. Eugenie Clark works with Dr. Avi Baranes on Eilat Beach during her past research in the Red Sea. Now Dr. Clark is planning a return trip to the Red Sea with Mote President and CEO Dr. Michael P. Crosby to celebrate Clark's 92nd birthday. Mote is offering the public a chance to book a spot on this special trip.
In 2011, Mote expanded its international efforts with the formal creation of the Mote-Israel Cooperative Marine Research Program. This program is designed to support research initiatives that benefit the environments of both nations, fund travel between the U.S. and Israel for researchers and support postdoctoral research scientists. The Program is also a key component of the Center for International Marine Science Diplomacy, which is being proposed by Mote. As an independent, nonprofit organization, Mote is uniquely poised to create this Center as a catalyst for improving international relations through cooperative marine science action plans that address core environmental issues that cut across political boundaries.
This journey will allow participants to join Mote in becoming a conduit for international collaborations that will serve as a new model for ocean conservation worldwide.
