Florida Sea Grant Extension & Education Program

Florida Sea Grant Speakers Bureau

Do you know of a group that would like to have someone speak to them about a marine-related topic? UF/IFAS Extension Florida Sea Grant agents and specialists are available to deliver science-based presentations about a variety of topics, including marine animals, ecosystems, and the science that goes into making management/policy decisions. These presentations can currently be given virtually, and may be able to be given in-person in the future.

Presentations can usually be offered at no cost within Florida. If your group offers an honorarium to speakers, checks should be made out to the University of Florida.
