We are excited to provide these new opportunities for our existing staff and our growing team – congratulations and welcome!

SAV Interagency Calibration Exercise

Submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) surveys can be conducted via a variety of methods. However, since SAV surveys are performed by multiple entities in the State of Florida and used in the development of statewide policy, an SAV calibration exercise is conducted annually to ensure consistent survey methodologies across all entities. During this calibration exercise, representatives from multiple state agencies, universities, and federal agencies come together to calibrate their methods for mapping, scoring, and reporting. EAI participated in the most recent calibration exercise in May 2017 and is now up-to-date on SAV survey methodologies that will mirror the calibrated statewide method.

Turtle Tank Exhibit

October 2014. EAI sponsored the installation of a turtle tank at Martin County’s Environmental Studies Center (ESC). The ESC holds a juvenile loggerhead turtle that is used to educate children about sea turtles. After two years, the turtle will be released, and a new turtle will be obtained. EAI has been involved in the Environmental Studies Council, the non-profit group that supports the environmental education programs offered by the ESC, for many years.
