Island Time

Living on Island Time

The first couple of days were spent waiting on this and on that and it truly felt like a year had gone by.  The first day was spent waking up early and driving to KCI airport where after about an hour or so of waiting we finally got on the plane that took us to Florida.  I sat in the very back of the plane with Zach and McCabe and I learned a valuable lesson from…

A New Experience

I woke up early and went to meet everyone at the library. Once we got our passports and tickets we all headed to the airport. We took a flight to Ft. Lauderdale.  Once there we all we out to eat and I had a Mahi-Mahi sandwich and tried some oyster, steamed clam, and calamari.  I think out of those 3 I will only have the calamari again.  Then we got our rooms and got the information for the plane trip to Andros.  We had the rest of the night to ourselves and I went swimming and hung out in…

Loving the Bahamas!

I have known that I wanted to this program for a long time now. My brother did it back in 2003. I saw how much fun he was having learning the fish and then going out on the sail boats and seeing them in person. I saw what he brought back from the trip and it all sounded like so much fun i just had to try and go. So here I am! I took the class and went on the trip.

Day 1



I couldn't sleep, I had to be up at 4:30 in the morning so we could…

The Bahamian Experience

Everything about the Bahamas was pretty much perfect. The weather, the people, the lifestyle, the water, the air, the night sky, and the people. Did I say people twice? Heck yes I did because the people truly were some of the coolest people ever.

They were some of the most down to earth and friendly people I have ever met. There was even a statue of a pair of hands shaking to really reinforce the fact that they were very friendly people.

The first day that we spent on…

Doin' It D.C. Style!

Colt's recent update on his life has inspired me to also update everyone on my shenanigans. I am not living in the beautiful wilderness of Alaska, but I am living in the concrete jungle of Washington D.C.

 

So, since I last checked in, I finished my dissertation research at the University of Rhode Island and am in the process of publishing my results. If all goes as planned, I will be Dr. Nicole Rohr in May with a Ph.D. in Biology! Here is my first chapter in case you are…

Off of Andros...





Day one 

                  I woke up an hour earlier than I had intended to, just as I always do on days like this. My head scrambled together a thousand images of a burning sun over a dancing blue sea, and my stomach ached for the adventure. I showered and dressed for the chilly Midwestern April, wishing I were already in the warm tropics of Andros. I tossed my bag in the car, kissed my family goodbye, and my mom and I headed off to meet the group. There’s…

Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter

The Wonder of The Ocean





4/3/11

We're Here, We're Finally here in the Bahamas, the cool salty air makes great sleeping conditions, which is good because I was exhausted after being stuck in the Ft. Lauderdale Airport for what felt like forever yesterday. Though my sandals appear to have been snatched away in the night by some local, oh well, not much I could do now if I wanted to. We woke up bright and early to get a head start on the other boat, Sirena.…

The wonderful trip

April 2nd 2011

On the flight into Andros we got to see the deep ocean blue turn to a clear bluish and greenish mix. When we saw this change I noticed that there almost no boats in sight. Karen slept most of the flight and actually ended up drooling on my hoodie….. The rest of the flight was just a little bit cold with out my hoodie.  After we landed and got into fresh…

Today is the day!

4/1/11

Today is the day! I wake up early and more than ready to head to Florida. We’re meeting in the parking lot behind the East Hills Library and I’m so excited I can’t even contain myself. I eat breakfast and go through my things again to make sure I have everything. With my checklist complete my mother and I head to the lot to meet up with everyone else. Upon our arrival I overhear Miles talking about his hat and I then realize I didn’t pack one; so my mom and I rush home to get one.… Continue

Vaquita porpoise rescued as part of VaquitaCPR conservation project, then released

Scientists with the VaquitaCPR conservation project announced they succeeded in locating and rescuing a highly endangered vaquita porpoise yesterday, but in an abundance of caution the vaquita, which was a calf, was released. VaquitaCPR is trying to save the world's most endangered marine mammal. Less than 30 are left in the world.

Prozac in ocean water a possible threat to sea life

Oregon shore crabs exhibit risky behavior when they're exposed to the antidepressant Prozac, making it easier for predators to catch them, according to a new study.

Life goes on for marine ecosystems after cataclysmic mass extinction

One of the largest global mass extinctions did not fundamentally change marine ecosystems, scientists have found.

Climate shifts shorten marine food chain off California

Environmental disturbances such as El Niño shake up the marine food web off Southern California, new research shows, countering conventional thinking that the hierarchy of who-eats-who in the ocean remains largely constant over time.

Maintaining fish biomass the key to conserving reef fish biodiversity

A new study has found that conserving fish diversity in Madagascar's coral reef systems may depend on maintaining fish biomass above critical levels.
