AHHH. The Bahamas.


April 4th, 2009

Beautiful… Tranquil…Divine… Those are just a few of the words that could describe this place. They say a “picture is worth a thousand words…” well no one could take enough photos to describe the beauty of Andros.

I first stepped off the small… Continue

Cheap Bottles of Mateus

Out of all the chapters in this book, this chapter started out with the most true and breathtakingly realistic quote. "For all at last return to the sea- Oceanus, the ocean river, like the ever-flowing stream of time, the beginning and the end." -Rachel Carson. I'm not one to believe in evolution ( I do believe evolution in terms of… Continue

REEF GO BOOM; Death by Dynomite in Indonesia...

I know, the title sounds immature, I thought the same thing after I typed it... Yet, it has a feel to it. The people in Indonesia are "ignorant". Most of the fisherman don't know the harm they are doing to the reef. They are slowly killing it off, yet one can ask, Are they allowed too? The poor fishing communities heavily rely on the Fishing Industry, and when they are make very little hauling in large boats, they have to do what they need to… Continue

Depression in the Thousand Islands: Jakarta Bay

Wow... Thanks A Lot Osha! You've written so many nice and interesting chapters into this book, and then throw this depressing one in. Just Kidding... I'm actually glad this chapter was so much in detail and contained many facts that EVERYONE needs to know about. Nash always talked about how the reefs have changed near Andros since he started going there, and how a lot of the coral is dying. Well, hate to break it to you all (actually, Osha kinda already did), people are killing the… Continue

Serendipity in the Reefs, and Fishy Stories

Chapter 7, to me, was very informative. It made me think of what any person could do, with no boundaries, such as age or experience. What if we go down to the Bahamas and discover something new, serendipity to our main cause. It would be amazing to be written about in a magazine or a newspaper; the marine biology group from Smalltown, MO, smack in the middle of the continent, discover something on a yearly trip that experienced scientists and divers have just overlooked. It’s a stretch, but I… Continue

thanks for the message, korby.

however, i have thought abut this much, and i actually have a plan.
i just haven't shared this one as of yet.

because i want this site to be not only a fun communication tool and network...
i also want it to be a place that is dripping with solid intellectual discourse.

therefore- i want us to really sculpt the site into that very thing prior to
bringing in any of the alumni. i want them to be impressed with the work you have done up to that point.

this way- when they choose to contribute on the site... they will have a lot to live up to!
it is all about building excellence from the ground up. we WILL invite our alumni in. in fact, i can't
WAIT. however, we will do it with a bit of a plan. i am thinking about halfway through our Enchanted Braid
project we will have enough work to show for what we have been doing to open it up to a wider audience.

make sense?

i appreciate your message very much. keep 'em coming!

Vital role of marine predators in supplying nutrients to coral reef ecology

It's long been known that sharks help nourish coral reefs, but exactly to what extent has never been scientifically mapped out -- until now.

'We're sleepwalking into a mass extinction' say scientists

Species that live in symbiosis with others, which often occur in the most delicately balanced and threatened marine ecosystems such as coral reefs, are the slowest to recover their diversity if damaged, according to a team of scientists.

Hunting squid slowed by rising carbon levels

Scientists have found that high carbon dioxide levels cause squid to bungle attacks on their prey. Investigators said that the oceans absorb more than one-quarter of all the excess carbon dioxide (CO2) released into the atmosphere by humans and this uptake of additional CO2 causes seawater to become more acidic.

Seaweeds shelter calcifying marine life from acidifying oceans

Seaweeds create a chemical microenvironment at their surface, providing refuge for calcifying organisms that are at risk from decreasing oceanic pH, shows new research.

Marine researchers say recent sea star wasting disease epidemic defies prediction

Beginning in 2013, a mysterious disease crippled sea star populations up and down the U.S. west coast. Over a matter of months, many sea star species died in record-breaking numbers, though the ochre sea star was among the hardest hit. Now, researchers have analyzed just how much the populations of this species have declined, but they have not yet determined what factors might be contributing to the epidemic.
