Mote Marine Laboratory has become a staple in the communities it serves over the last 60 years, yet surprisingly still little remains known about all that Mote does.

As issues of the environment emerge such as:
  • long-term effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill
  • red tide
  • climate change
  • and the restoration needs of damaged and depleted marine resources
Mote is not just part of the conversation, but working towards science-based solutions and action. When you think about these issues that affect you and your families, remember that you too can make an important impact by supporting Mote's Oceans of Opportunity campaign. You have the power to make a difference.

Thank you for your continued support that makes such a difference for the marine environment!


Michael P. Crosby, Ph.D., FLS
