I see that I didn't even get around to one single blog in Dec...and now I'm only going to have one in Jan. So sorry to leave you hanging guys, I've been running around quite a bit. From the US to Australia and back AND I'm trying to organise my next few stops in the US and then where I'll be going to after that.
Let me get you up to date first:
I visited Tim at Tagai State College where he showed me how the students have been monitoring Seagrass for the last 8 years at the same locations (places). The monitoring is done to pick up if there is any change in the meadow (the patch of Seagrass). The way they do it is by taking photos in a set pattern (quadrants) so that they can make sure that it's done in the same way each time.
|Here I am sitting next to a photo marker next to one of the squares (quadrants) in a Seagrass meadow.|
I've been to Miami Seaquarium and the University of Miami to check out their nudibranch, cobia (a type of fish) and coral research. For some silly reason, I don't have my pics sorted yet so I'll get those posted ASAP. Thanks for hosting me Mark!
I've got more photos coming for this trip too.
Have a great week Sea Fans and chat soon.
