A description of the session:

In response to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil release, Scott was embedded with the U.S. Coast Guard in Sector Key West.  We integrated the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife into the planning process to develop site-specific tactical response plans for protection of the Dry Tortugas National Park, the Marquesas Islands, the Keys and the southern Everglades.  The goal was to protect a multitude of threatened and endangered species, refuges, marine sanctuaries, cultural artifacts and sensitive ecosystems unique to the Keys while facing the inherent difficulties of oil spill response in these areas.
