Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Is Hiring a Sanctuary Research Coordinator

An important partner in BTT's work in the Florida Keys is the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is charged with, among other things, making sure the habitats that support our flats fishery remain healthy. To do this, they need to conduct their own science, collaborate with others conducting science, and figure out how best to apply the science to management strategy. The FKNMS has an important job opening. We are helping them to spread the word about this opening because this is such an important position.
