There will also be an opportunity to have the many manatee questions that you are burning to ask answered! Come one, come all to learn about the treasured Florida Manatee!

About our speaker: Marshalluna Land was born and raised in The Natural State of Arkansas. While pursuing her B.S. in General Biology at the University of Arkansas at Conway she took a Marine Mammology course in the Gulf Coast where her passion for marine research birthed.  After earning her B.S. degree, Marshalluna went on to earn her M.S. degree in Marine Science at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida. Throughout her academic career at JU, she began volunteering with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and eventually became an intern at the Jacksonville Field Lab. Marshalluna is now employed by the agency as Marine Mammal Research Biologist specializing in manatee rescue and recovery.
