Mote Marine: Are They Leaving or Are They Staying?
Mote Marine is one of the most forefront marine biology research facilities in the world, and with it's beautiful aquarium, truly a treasure of our community! However, there are some major changes in store for it's future in the form of a brand new state of the art aquarium to be built at Benderson Park in the eastern part of Sarasota county near I-75. What will become of the current facility though? Well, they have a plan for that too. It will remain a research facility and, in fact, they plan to expand research efforts there. Is this a good idea? Watch below as Mike and Steve break down the all the details of the plan and how it will impact our community.
