Caribbean Field Notes: Counting Fish and Chronicling Culture in Cuba

Tuesday, March 31, 2009 @ 10:30 AM-12:01 PM

Featured Speaker: Captain Rib Bolton, President, African Insights & Salty Dog Productions

Perched in the Gulf of Mexico and just 89 miles from Florida, lies the Caribbean Republic of Cuba with its colorful marine life, vibrant culture and Spanish colonial architecture. Naturalist, scuba instructor, videographer, and U.S. Coast Guard boat captain, Rib Bolton takes us on a marine research expedition in Cuban waters counting reef fish. With reefs that exceed the Florida Keys and serve as spawning grounds for many species of fish, the waters off the Cuban coast are one of the Caribbean’s most diverse marine environments. Journey underwater along the coast of Cuba with Captain Rib to learn why it’s important to protect these Caribbean waters; and step onto dry land as he takes a look at the people of Cuba, their culture and daily life– salsa, dominoes (a National pastime), outdoor markets, and, of course, vintage motorcycles and cars.
