Nearly one year after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Mote Marine has announced a conference that will highlight habitats and needed protections for the Gulf in the aftermath of the disaster.
“Beyond Horizon” will take place from May 11-13 at Mote and will focus on protecting and preserving the Gulf. The conference will include a discussion of the mechanisms that can be used to develop a more comprehensive approach to managing the Gulf and its resources.
Organizing and supporting groups include Mote, Harte Research Institute, the University of South Florida College of Marine Sciences and the National Marine Sanctuaries Foundation. The conference will be open to the public.
“For Mote, and for all the scientists who study the Gulf, the spill and its effects will remain a key scientific focus for years to come,” said Dr. Kumar Mahadevan, Mote’s president and CEO, in a prepared statement. “This disaster really helped illustrate the need for more coordinated research efforts Gulf-wide.”
