This month on Spotlight Tampa, we visit the newest addition to the Tampa Riverwalk. We learn how Conga Caliente brings together people from diverse backgrounds to celebrate a rich blend of cultures.  The Florida Aquarium tells us about some of the exciting work taking place at one of the coral greenhouses at the Center for Conservation.  Tampa Fire Rescue participates in Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting training at Tampa International Airport. Automated garbage and recycling collection has improved trash removal in the City of Tampa, and residents can help by keeping their carts in tip-top shape. Some employers are starting to make riding to work easy, safe, and fun for their employees.  USF’s College of Public Health researchers were recently awarded a National Institutes of Health grant to identify optimal drug candidates that could lead to a fast-acting treatment for rare, but deadly, infections caused by microscopic, free-living amoeba found in warm freshwater lakes and rivers and in soil.  And ZooBoo KIDS is all-new for kids ages 11 & under at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo.
