Nicole Johnston joined Mote Marine Laboratory in May 2021. She was born and raised in sunny South Florida. Growing up she had a deep love for wildlife and adventure. She comes to us from the east coast with a background in animal care and handling. She started her career journey at The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society to become more involved in conservation efforts but soon realized she also had a passion for education. Nicole has joined our education team with a passion to inspire others to love and respect wildlife to help better understand the natural world.
B.S. in Public Health from Stetson University in DeLand, FL in 2019
We are tremendously thankful that Mote Aquarium will be able to reopen to the public on Saturday, October 1, during normal operating hours (9:30 AM - 5:00 PM), following our closure for preparation and response to Hurricane Ian. Unfortunately, our Sharktoberfest event, which was scheduled for October 1, will be postponed. If you have purchased a ticket, please check your email for more information. Our thoughts and best wishes are with our friends, family, partners and all of those who are continuing to manage recovery efforts. Any additional updates about reopening will be provided via social media: @MoteMarineLab on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
