Cuba's most renowned marine protected area the Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen) is most famous for its sharks and goliath groupers but another large marine species can be predictably found there too: Crocodilus acutus, the American crocodile.

Today our host Cristina Escobar goes to the seaside town of Baracoa to speak with Dra. Patricia Gonzalez, the director of Cuba’s Marine Research Center. They begin by talking about our guest’s love for the sea and what prompted her to become a marine biologist. The discussion then turns to the factors that contribute to Cuba having the best preserved coral reefs in the Caribbean, risks faced by the island’s marine ecosystems, measures that should be taken to protect the sea and marine resources, the history and advantages of scientific cooperation with the United States, and the possibilities of developing ecotourism. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/interviews-from-havana-435191/

This course incorporated students into research activities undertaken through the joint Eckerd College-Universidad de la Habana marine science collaboration. Students participated in data collection for projects conducted in the marine environment of Cuba, working side-by-side with Cuban students, staff, and faculty from boats or from shore. In Cuba we collected data for 4 different projects, tasks included deploying FinPrint recordings, characterizing lagoon habitats, manatee boat surveys, and reef surveys/removal of invasive lionfish.
