JOIN THE EXPERTS:  EXPERIENCE THE UNDERWATER WONDERS OF PALM BEACH COUNTY

From shipwrecks to coral reefs to bridges, many underwater sites in Palm Beach County are becoming increasingly popular among divers and snorkelers for the remarkable abundance and diversity of unusual marine life they support.  

May 17th: THE DOLPHINS OF PALM BEACH COUNTY (non-diving): Join Zoo Conservation Biologist Larry Wood and Dr. Barbara Brunnick of Jupiter's Taras Oceanographic Foundation for a closer look at the wild dolphins that frequent the waters of Palm Beach County.  For many years, Dr. Brunnick has been photographically cataloging the bottlenose and spotted dolphins found in our waters, and has compiled the only information available about the abundance and population structure of these marvelous members of our local marine community.  Host:  Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures, Riviera Beach
