CFF showcases research careers at Blue Economy day at Cape Cod Community College

Coonamessett Farm Foundation's Mary Newton-Lima talked research careers with high school students at the Blue Economy career day held on January 8, 2019 at Cape Cod Community College and sponsored by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce. More than 400 students from Cape Cod and the Islands came to "WaterWORKS" a one-day showcase of careers in our coastal region. Newton-Lima showed a CFF research video that gives a turtle's eye, underwater view and displayed a scallop dredge which CFF modified to allow sea turtles to escape unintended capture. https://www.capecodtimes.com/news/20190108/cape-cod--islands-students-look-to-cash-in-on-blue-economy
