Dr. Christian Heesch takes time for vacation and relaxation with the opportunity arises. Although his work as a Marine Biologist is very demanding and doesn’t allow him much down time, he recently embarked on an amazing adventure to Boca Raton, Florida, and the Florida Keys.
With the sole intention of relaxing, Dr. Heesch decided to go to Red Reef Park in Boca Raton. When he went scuba diving, he made amazing discoveries in the coral reef homes of familiar tiny organisms.
Realizing the Florida Reef is the only living coral barrier reef in the United States, he decided to head south of Boca Raton to the Florida Keys. The Florida Reef is the third largest coral barrier reef system in the world. Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_Reef. Coral reefs serve as a great marine resource to our oceans.
Not totally abandoning his vacation intentions, Dr. Heesch often dined out in restaurants to savor the local cuisine. Engaging conversions with other customers validated the impact his research and studies in marine biology have on human life and enjoyment.
From professional fishermen to tourists, the importance of discovering ways to protect and preserve marine life, in any form, came full circle in his mind. Returning home to his long life State of New York, Dr. Christian Heesch smiled at the thought of the old saying, “We’re all in the same boat.” His vacation truly was a “hands-on” learning experience in the study of oceans and an enlightening experience in the significance of marine biology to fellow human beings.
