Our first annual event, "Wild Ocean Science", was a success! Over 200 people were in attendance filling the lobby area of the Osher Lifelong Learning Center at FAU in Jupiter. A beautiful slideshow by photographer, Hussain Aga Khan, donated by his foundation, Focused on Nature, played in the auditorium while guests enjoyed refreshments, browsed the raffle and silent auction tables, had their book signed by Dr. Herzing, perused our sunshirts and t-shirts, and mingled with friends. As the event got underway, special guest host Miles O'Brien introduced the premiering film, "Dolphins: Breaking the Code" by Changing Seas, a SouthFlorida PBS production. Thanks to student sponsors (Axel Stepan, Nic Mader, and Lisa Fast) 38 students from The Ideal School in Royal Palm Beach, The Gale Academy in West Palm, and FAU college students were in attendance, asking some great questions during the Q&A.

Research Associate and Wildlife Photographer, Bethany Augliere, donated a photo of "Shimmer", a juvenile dolphin, and was our event photographer for the evening. You'll see her photos posted on facebook.
