Manatee Lagoon was one of nine locations for the annual Lake Worth Lagoon Drift Card Study. Friends of Manatee Lagoon volunteers partnered with the ANGARI Foundation for this citizen science program that uses a series of coordinated releases of small eco-friendly wooden drift cards to study the motion of water and pollutants in waterways in and around the Lake Worth Lagoon. The study solicits the help of local community members in creating, decorating, deploying, locating, and reporting found drift cards to get a better understanding of how marine debris is transported and accumulates in our area. Thanks to our Friends of Manatee Lagoon volunteers for their support of this important ecological study for the benefit of all marine life.
