Ask a Scientist Series – Marine Biology, Sharks, and Sea Turtles

July 24 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Originally from Detroit, MI, Carlee moved to Florida and received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at Florida Atlantic University in 2016. Ever since she read her first book on sharks at 6 years old, she has been obsessed with learning more about these animals. Currently, she is a graduate student pursuing her Master’s in Marine Biology at Nova Southeastern University (NSU). Carlee’s research thesis is titled, “Examining the effects of provisioning tourism on nurse sharks in Caye Caulker, Belize.” She also is a Marine Turtle Specialist at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, conducting sea turtle nesting surveys along Boca Raton beaches, assisting with medical procedures and husbandry in the sea turtle rehabilitation center. In her free time she enjoys going SCUBA diving and snorkeling at nearby reefs.
