We are all anxious and excited to get back out on the water this fall to continue with our research effort. We will conduct boat-based surveys on the water in Monterey Bay. If you are interested in volunteering for Marine Life Studies please contact us. There are many areas in which you can volunteer either on or off the water.
This fall a student from California State University, Monterey Bay will be joining us on our boat surveys. She is a graduate student and wants to do her thesis on the growing problem of marine debris, distribution and density, and impact on marine life (entanglements, ingestion of plastic, etc.). We have already shared our data with her from past seasons. Looking forward to having her onboard.
We encourage students to join us on the project. Please contact us if you are interested. We will be happy to teach you all aspects of the project and proper procedure of research techniques.
