Hey everyone! My name is Ryan Lusardi and I am currently studying coastal biology at the University of North Florida. I am originally from Fernandina Beach, Florida, and came into the university as a transfer junior. My passion for the industry is all about sea turtles! They are by far the most interesting organisms in the sea to me and I have been lucky enough to have adopted my own Loggerhead sea turtle, that once resided in Juno Beach, Florida.
