2:23 PM | Hello! So I'm only in my second year of college in the U.S.A. and am studying to be a marine biologist. I came across your blog and am OBSESSED. Literally you live my dream life. I'm in love with the U.K., traveling is my favorite, and I want to be in the whale shark conservation field. Any way, I was wondering if by any chance you could tell me some more about the organization you worked with that dealt with the public feeding the whale shark?
Hi, thanks for the follow! It’s actually the local community that feed the sharks for...

12:00 PM | Symphonies of the Sea
I am inspired by the sea. Inspired to understand the way it moves, meanders, ebbs, flows, heaves, and crashes. Others are inspired by the sea to create. Inspired to dance, draw, perform, paint, and compose. It is this last genre that I want to highlight with a selection of ocean-inspired symphonies. I like to think of them as bringing all the ocean to […]

2:37 AM | Steller’s sea cow – candidate for de-extinction?
Today in Evolunch, we discussed de-extinction.  One species we evaluated for post-extinction-reintroduction via the magic of genetics is the Steller’s sea cow, extinct in the wild since 1768 (less than 30 years after it was “discovered”) . Below is an excerpt from The Unnatural History of the Sea by Callum Roberts that describes the discovery and subsequent […]

9:58 PM | Forest Service Wants Commercial Photography Out of its Wilderness
Ansel Adams helped create what we now call American wilderness through his skillful photography – both his photographs and the places he used them to protect are national treasures. Recently, many of us were reminded of our country’s wilderness legacy through celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. For a quick reminder, the […]

9:39 PM | Dead Bird Quiz answers
Another set of unanimous decisions on these three specimens. Edward and James both came back with answers of A) cormorant (probably double-crested); B) Juvenile herring gull; C) no idea/? That’s where I came down on these as well, but I wanted to post them because they each illustrate one of the challenges in identifying dead […]

2:22 AM | No you’re not paranoid – there is a bias against publishing marine conservation papers
How many times have you submitted a marine conservation paper to a journal only to have it rejected because it is “too marine”, of “too narrow a focus” or “of limited interest to our readers”?  Despite the oceans making up 71% of Earth’s surface and 99% of the know biosphere, it sometimes seems that there’s […]
