Here’s your expedition update for today, from Oceana’s senior campaign communications manager Dustin Cranor:
The Oceana Latitude sailed all night and day to reach our next destination, Tampa.
The long commute allowed the crew to review and prepare photos and video from the dive operation off the coast of Key West. Although the conditions were not ideal, our specialized divers were able to capture some beautiful underwater landscapes. And while in commute, we were entertained by yet another dolphin sighting. This time, we have it on video for you.
I also took time today to interview Oceana’s vice president for Belize, Audrey Matura-Shepherd. Belize, known for its pristine waters, is now also at threat from offshore drilling. Audrey hopes that the situation facing the Gulf will help to alert the Belizean people of the dangers of offshore drilling.
