Photo Contest to Document Changing Sea Levels

Next weekend, the West Coast of Florida will experience several king tides — the highest tides of the year — which will happen May 26th and 27th in Sarasota and Manatee counties. The Sarasota Bay Estuary Program works with local governments and other agencies to restore and protect the health of Sarasota Bay, and the organization wants to document the effect of those tides by sponsoring a photo contest. Host Rob Lorei interviewed Darcy Young, public outreach manager with the Sarasota Bay Estuary Program, who explained what king tides are and gave details on the photo contest.
