The Gulf and The Eagle
The Gulf of Mexico is the ninth-largest body of water in the world. While also a critical space for commercial activity, the gulf also serves as the home for a host of bird and wetland species. Jack E. Davis, Professor of History and Rothman Family Chair in the Humanities at the University of Florida, will share how the Gulf of Mexico plays an integral part of the nation’s environmental story. Davis will also show how the status of the bald eagle, a symbol of national pride, is intricately connected to healthy water sources.
The Gulf and the Eagle is part of a conversation series, Let’s Talk About Water, convened by Florida Humanities to celebrate water as a life-sustaining source.
