 Dr. Dave Tomasko - “Taking Care of Sarasota Bay: current conditions and actions for a healthier future”

As part of the celebration of our 75th Anniversary and Year of Light, we are shedding light on the health of our local ecosystems and working to bring our community together in support of restored waterways for manatees and more. Dr. Dave Tomasko joins us to report the latest findings on the health of Sarasota Bay, what needs to be done to restore it to a healthier condition, and what projects and programs are being planned to reach the goal of a healthier Sarasota Bay. Dr. Tomasko is the Executive Director of the Sarasota Bay Estuary Program. He has more than 30 years of experience in water quality assessments and the development of science-based natural resource plans in the Gulf of Mexico and international locations.
