On Monday, February 6, 2017, around 1:30 a.m. CST, a sonic boom shook residents of the Midwest as a bright green fireball streaked through the night sky. The sound was that of a meteor, nearly the size of a minivan, entering our atmosphere. After its fall to Earth, radar spotted the end of its journey over Lake Michigan, approximately 10 miles off the coast of Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Teen explorers from Chicago, led by scientists from the Adler Planetarium's Far Horizons program, The Shedd Aquarium, and The Field Museum, team up to take on this Underwater ROV Meteorite Hunt. Interested explorers wanted!

Recent Observations

Today 23 July 2019 is not a good day for pink seaweed and Wester Ross Marine Protected Area. We worked very very hard indeed to secure the MPA from scallop dredgers - so it is heartbreaking to think that they have been coming in and doing damage for some time - and we believe that could well be the case.....we have had reports for some time .... See this newspaper report below on possible illegal dredging in Wester Ross Marine Protected area ( 23rd July.) We think it is near a maerl bed which is in recovery and we may have filmed before.. https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/17787438.probe-launched-suspected-scallop-dredging/ This is beyond heartbreaking actually. Maerl is ancient. Up to as old as the ice age and it supports so many fisheries. To damage it is wanton vandalism and we hope the mearl just may have escaped it ..of course will not know if this maerl is damaged until divers go down and report. This is a story illustrating how urgent a Trident is for our work so we can collect evidence fast which will help us secure our Marine Protected Area from illegal scallop dredgers and act quickly. The pink seaweed we are protecting is a keystone species. So much depends on it.......but the story of the pink seaweed is really about our interdependence and the interconnectivity of sea, our fisheries, people, the coastal economy (herring, scallops, cod, crustaceans) and in the long run our survival and of course this big blue planet. Illegal scallop dredging is a major threat to our MPAs ecosystem recovery as well as our hopes for fisheries restoration which support coastal communities.... MPAs in Scotland face two major threats - illegal dredging and salmon farm damage. Of course there is climate change and acidification and plastic and ghost fishing and other challenges as well. Today we are overwhelmed by the task....But hopeful something good will come out of this. It must. Perhaps the return of the 3 mile limit? Something good MUST come of it....eventually. Hope springs eternal... See where they dredged. Caught red handed on camera. No AIS tracks. Outrageous. The film will need permission to show, so I will not share that as it requires the fishermen's permission.

"Na última sexta-feira, 21/06, parte da equipe do projeto Open Explorer da National Geographic, Brazilian Marine Parks, foi ao Parque Estadual Marinho da Laje de Santos com objetivo de filmar o local na expectativa de encontrar mantas. A expedição veio da parceria entre Felipe Martins, Embaixador da Padi, pesquisadores do Projeto Mantas do Brasil, Tartarugas Marinhas das Ilhas, Erika Beux e destemidos mergulhadores que aceitaram o desafio de encarar o mar revolto, cuja previsão climática alertava para ressaca naquele dia."
