An invasive blood-sucking parasite that has decimated mud shrimp populations along the West Coast continues its northward expansion, reaching Calvert Island, British Columbia. The find suggests the parasite can spread without human transport. Story: floridamuseum.ufl.edu/science/invasi…

I wrote a thing! Have been thinking a lot about how the #forestfiresmoke we are breathing now brings us closer to understanding how #oceanacidification may feel for marine life. Thanks to the @thenarwhalca for supporting and publishing my work! thenarwhal.ca/wildfire-ocean…

Seagrass: Life in the Underwater Meadows "Schools of baby fish hide within the grassy maze as emerald sea slugs graze algae off the blades. Seagrass is an ocean-dwelling flowering plant, which provides a home for countless creatures." youtu.be/uRnFLujT368 via @HakaiInstitute

A blast from the past. The Grumman Goose amphibian churns away from the Calvert dock. First time here this year. Vintage. The Corilair Cessna chugs in.
A bit better picture. I guess the planet moves a tiny bit during the 30 second exposure.
Mars, due east over Kwakshua Channel on Calvert Island, BC Central Coast. Casting its red reflection in the calm ocean. Magic.

I'm really proud of this BC Parks project: from 17,000 observations of 2765 species in May 2019 to 200,000 observations of over 6000 species in August 2020, we're learning lots about biodiversity in British Columbia. Use @inaturalist! inaturalist.org/projects/bc-pa…

Ever find a rubbery collar of sand on the beach? It may look human-made, but the culprit is a gargantuan gastropod called a moon snail! These predators are also responsible for those perfect beveled holes you find on clam shells.
