Humpback Hero Saves Snorkeler

In 28 years of research, marine biologist Nan Hauser had never seen a whale approach her the way this one did. In the end, the creature was a real life saver. #deepbluOriginal #whales #humpbacks #nanhauser #research #marinebiology #tigersharks #rescue... More

A great news story on Day 1 Of 2018 & an update on Lady Turtle. We are all so excited as Lady no longer has to be tube fed after 8 months. She is getting stronger by the day & she is one heck of s fighter. We have had to put a sun shirt on her to protect her shell as she cannot yet sit on the bottom of the pool. Delighted & excited is an understatement in the Marine Bio Centre today at Barefoot Island #science #marinebiology part of what we do. #BarefootManta #Yasawa #Fiji #science #marinebiology #BarefootManta #Yasawa #Fiji...

Coming soon from Ocean Sanctuaries: in partnership with REEF, we will be offering a certification in Marine citizen science. Sometime in early 2017, Ocean Sanctuaries plans to offer a joint certification in marine citizen scientist, with REEF.org. It will consist of two parts: the first part will be offered through REEF and consist of a basic fish and marine life identification course, specific to the West Coast or the Pacific Northwest, to be taken online at the REEF website--a course which has been available now for a number of years. The second portion of the course, to be offered through OS, will be a non-marine citizen science skills course, offering basic scientific and methodological skills which needed by a citizen scientist. Since this will be one of the first certifications of its kind to be offered, OS would be interested in getting beta feedback on the non-marine of the course. The idea would be to provide a link to the second portion of the course here in this #citizenscience #marinebiology... More
