For the first time in 15 months, a team from the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary returned to the reefs.

The cruise was the team’s first visit to the area since the pandemic began, and although the staff was smaller than usual because of COVID protocols, the trip was a success, said Emma Hickerson, research coordinator for the sanctuary.
