DISL To Present Marine Environmental Awards
DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. — The Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation (DISL) will host its Tenth Annual Marine Environmental Awards Luncheon on October 26 at 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza Hotel. It will feature American oceanographer Dr. David Gallo, who has participated in expeditions to all the oceans and was one of the first scientists to use a combination of robots and submarines to explore the deep seafloor. Most recently, he co-led an expedition to create the first detailed and comprehensive map of the RMS Titanic and co-led the successful international effort to locate the remains of Air France Flight 447. Awards will also be presented to Angus R. Cooper, III, and the Alabama Wildlife Federation. DISL said both have made outstanding contributions to marine environmental sustainability in the region.
