This is the second in a series of posts about the 2009 Ocean Heroes finalists.
Today we’re catching up with Lynora Indiviglio, who was a finalist last year because she founded the PalmBeach HammerHeads, South Florida's largest environmental dive club. For the past 8 years, the group has cleaned the areas reefs the last Sunday of every month. Lynora is also a member of the Palm Beach County Reef Research Team, which documents the health of Palm Beach County's Artificial Reef Program.
Sounds like she and the HammerHeads are busy as ever. She sent us this e-mail:
“The HammerHeads are still working hard at their cleanups and spreading the important news about the ocean and its importance to us all.
I met with Karen the 'Red Tide Coordinator' this past week as myself and some other HammerHeads have been collecting samples for her. We also had a representative from South Florida Water Management District come talk to us about the laboratory they have in the Everglades and what they're doing out there. She did a presentation at our March meeting and we had a full house.”
Inspired by Lynora's commitment to ocean conservation? Nominate an ocean hero you know, young or old.
