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.
June 2007. EAI initiated baseline monitoring for a proposed dredging project in the Manatee Pocket, Martin County, Florida. The Manatee Pocket is a shallow embayment near the confluence of the St. Lucie River, Indian River Lagoon, and St. Lucie Inlet. The County has proposed removing muck sediments from the Pocket to enhance navigation and restore environmental function. Monitoring of water quality, sediment chemistry, benthic macroinvertebrates, and seagrasses before and after construction will serve as the basis for assessing the effectiveness of the restoration project.
