World Oceans Day 2012


Every day should be a day to celebrate and appreciate the ocean, but the 8th of June has officially been designated as World Oceans Day. Sadly, there are no Pearson marine scientists here to celebrate today, so I have posted a few photos from this afternoon at Weir’s Beach.

Great Blue Heron

Laura & Simon collected and observed a few purple shore crabs.

Simon found a young bull kelp in the drift algae.

And we spotted two clusters of fish eggs in the holdfast of a bull kelp.

We investigated the piles of seaweed on the beach.

Tucker plowed through the still suspended drift seaweed.

And finally here are a few links for further information about World Oceans Day:
