The Florida Keys: Dive Into History

NOAA Ocean Podcast: Episode 68

In this episode, we're heading to the Florida Keys, the only place in the continental United States with shallow water coral reefs. But these corals are not the only thing that make the Keys special. We're joined by Brenda Altmeier, maritime heritage coordinator for Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, to tell us the story of the Florida Keys through maritime history to give you just a taste of why this place is unlike anywhere else in the nation.


The NOAA Central Library Seminar program provides an educational forum (hosting over 1,000 presentations since 1992) for the presentation of ideas, research updates and news in support of NOAA's mission: to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans and coasts; to share that knowledge and information with others; and to conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources.
