Vero Beach: Toxic Puzzle Screening and Q&A with Bo Landin

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This film is an excellent opportunity to learn about what’s happening with Florida waters. #HelpTheLagoon .

Ocean Research & Conservation Association presents a special showing of this award-winning documentary.  The film follows scientist Dr. Paul Cox and his team as they investigate linkages between toxins produced by cyanobacteria (better known as toxic blue-green algae) and the neurodegenerative diseases ALS, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.  These toxins have been in the news lately with major blooms in  Lake Okeechobee, the Caloosahatche River, and the St. Lucie estuary.  Toxic Puzzle describes the science behind some of the possible linkage between these blooms and the health of local residents.  Dr. Edie Widder, CEO of ORCA, will introduce the film and producer Bo Landin will be on hand for a Q&A following the film.  Admission is Free.
