"Museums in the Sea" Provides Virtual Dive Into Florida's Underwater Archaeological Preserves

Secretary of State Kurt S. Browning today announced the completion of the “Museums in the Sea” project, presenting extensive online resources and information about Florida’s 11 Underwater Archaeological Preserves. Visitors to the online site at www.museumsinthesea.com can choose a shipwreck, take a guided underwater tour of the site, watch a narrated history of the vessel, and observe the marine life that lives in the wreckage.

“Museums in the Sea” provides detailed Web tours of Florida’s 11 Underwater Archaeological Preserves,” said Secretary Browning. “This is another way in which we can share Florida’s unique maritime heritage with the world. Now everyone who has access to the Internet can virtually visit Florida’s living museums in the sea.”

Florida’s Underwater Archaeological Preserves combine heritage, ecological and recreational tourism opportunities at 11 shipwreck locations around the state. The program began in 1987 in response to sites that were nominated by local waterfront communities. Since then, the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research has established the 11 shipwreck parks throughout the state that have become popular attractions for snorkelers and divers.

Each section of the “Museums in the Sea” Web site has photographs and text to accompany the videos, and visitors may download and print the Underwater Preserve brochures and underwater guides. “Museums in the Sea” provides educators with new research material for students, who can use their computers to learn about Florida’s maritime history and marine biology, and see environmental changes that can occur to shipwrecks over time.

The interactive Web site was created by the Bureau of Archaeological Research Underwater Archaeology Team and the Florida Center for Interactive Media, with funding assistance from the Department of Environmental Protection, Coastal Management Program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

State Archaeology Web Site Allows Visitors To Dive into Florida’s Shipwreck Parks Without Getting Wet

Secretary of State Kurt S. Browning today announced the launch of the Department of State’s newest Internet feature, “Museums in the Sea.”

“The “Museums in the Sea” Web site provides a virtual Web tour of Florida’s Underwater Archaeological Preserves,” said Secretary Browning. “This is another way in which we can share Florida’s unique maritime heritage with the world. Now everyone who has access to the Internet can virtually visit Florida’s living museums in the sea.”

Florida’s Underwater Archaeological Preserves combine heritage, ecological and recreational tourism opportunities at 11 shipwreck locations around the state. The program began in 1987 in response to sites that were nominated by local waterfront communities. Since then, the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research has established the eleven shipwreck parks throughout the state that have become popular attractions for snorkelers and divers.

To “dive” into Florida’s “Museums in the Sea” visit www.museumsinthesea.com. Visitors can choose a shipwreck, take a guided underwater tour of the site, watch a narrated history of the vessel, and observe the marine life that lives in the wreckage. Each section of the site has photographs and text to accompany the videos. Visitors also have the opportunity to download and print the Underwater Preserve brochures and underwater guides.

The five Florida Shipwreck Preserves currently posted on the new Web site include: Lofthus, an iron barque wrecked off Boynton Beach; USS Massachusetts, the oldest existing American battleship sunk off Pensacola; Half Moon, a German racing yacht off Miami, City of Hawkinsville, the largest and last Suwannee River steamboat, and SS Copenhagen, a steel cargo vessel that wrecked off Pompano Beach. Videos and information on the remaining six preserves will be added to the Web site in the near future.

The Web site also provides educators with new research material for students, who can use their computers to learn about Florida’s maritime history and marine biology, and see environmental changes that can occur to shipwrecks over time.

The “Museums in the Sea” interactive Web site was created by the Bureau’s Underwater Archaeology Team and the Florida Center for Interactive Media, with funding assistance from the Department of Environmental Protection, Coastal Management Program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
