Marine science is the interdisciplinary study of the oceans, estuaries, and inland seas of the world. For more than 50 years, Jacksonville University has claimed the dolphin as its mascot. Now can you imagine living with real dolphins – plus manatee, sharks, stingrays and more – in your own backyard?
