Sarasota Sea Grass Survey

Sarasota Bay Sea Grass Survey

For several years, staff and volunteers at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens have participated in an annual survey of the sea grass in Sarasota Bay. Sea grass is vital to the overall health of the bay, as well as providing food for manatees, turtles, and other animals. The team collects data and provides them to the county for an overall analysis of the state of the bay.
