Abstract

Holly Sue Greening, Executive Director of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program, grew up on the east coast of Florida. Inspired as a child by ichthyologist Dr. Eugenie Clark's Lady with a Spear, Greening earned her master's degree in marine biology from Florida State University. After working at various estuarine sites around Florida, Holly moved to Tampa Bay in the late 1980s and has spent the subsequent decades with the Tampa Bay Estuary Program. In this interview, Greening discusses the history of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program, its various initiatives, and its role in improving the area's seagrass. Greening also discusses several environmental challenges the bay has faced, including climate change, acidification, and toxic materials management. Greening shares her thoughts on habitat restoration as well as the importance of community involvement in the overall recovery and restoration of the bay.
