Mote Marine Red Tide Institute Announces Support from Barancik Foundation



Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium has announced that Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation has provided $751,487 in funding that will provide a significant level of support for the director of the Red Tide Institute at Mote, helping to ensure consistent progress towards developing and testing innovative technologies for the control and mitigation of the impacts of red tide.
The new Red Tide Institute at Mote—established in the fall of 2018 with a transformative philanthropic investment from its Founding Donor, the Andrew and Judith Economos Charitable Foundation—will seek to bring together the best and brightest scientists with a goal of using applied science and innovative technologies to determine the most effective, ecologically-sound and novel methods for the mitigation of adverse impacts from Florida red tide.
Following the establishment of the Red Tide Institute, Mote recruited a widely respected red tide algal bloom expert, Dr. Cynthia Heil, to serve as the Institute’s director and help coordinate mitigation-development efforts with red tide researchers in five ongoing and diverse red tide-related research programs at Mote.
