Savanna was born and raised here in Sarasota and has a passion for coastal living, the ocean, and all living things within it. Before coming to Mote, she worked in Finance within the mental health sector and while she enjoyed it, she knew she wanted to help make a difference in her community. During her free time, Savanna is an avid paddleboarder and loves to spend time on the water with her dog. She also volunteers her time fostering puppies for a local non-profit.

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.
