• Club Fellow Dr. David E. Guggenheim will recap the Flag Expedition he co-led to Cuba's magnificent Gardens of the Queen marine reserve. The team dove and documented numerous underwater sites, some of which have been only rarely, if ever, visited before. They also explored the "floating reefs," vibrant young corals growing atop vast piles of rubble from ancient living reefs that could provide clues to guide coral reef restoration efforts throughout the Caribbean.
