The Biomedical and Chemistry students from the Port St. Lucie campus visited the Manatee Observation Center in Fort Pierce.  Students learned about volunteer opportunities in research, fund development, archiving and educational events at the center.  Students were lucky to catch sight of one manatee in the water and learned about their body, bones, what they eat, research and the history of manatees not only in Florida, but the world, as well as the importance of our Indian River Lagoon.
