Marine lab launches Webpage focused on oysters
Over the past decade, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation has been actively working to restore oyster reefs in the areas around Sanibel and Captiva. The lab conducts routine monitoring of oyster reef health, targeted research on specific oyster attributes, and has restored a dozen reefs.
Created by SCCF Marine Lab Manager A.J. Martignette, a new Webpage provides an in-depth look at the work. Visit online at https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/57d31a8a039448b18af5ad7bfb8106f9.
Built on an interactive platform, it includes background information on oysters, outlines how SCCF restores reefs, and discusses some of the monitoring and research the lab has conducted. It features maps, slideshows and videos. Visitors can watch an overview video that was created five years ago by then-Marine Lab intern Leah Reidenbach, who is now the lab’s research associate.
