Counting marine organisms is tough. It's even tougher when you're trying to do it along both coasts of North and South America. MBARI oceanographer Francisco Chavez is working on this.

Many scientists around the world are studying marine biodiversity—the variety of life forms in the ocean. But there is no common standard for how to conduct this research or to compile the data from different studies in different areas. MBARI’s Francisco Chavez, a biological oceanographer, and his collaborators have been developing an international collaboration to fill these gaps and collect biological measurements across diverse marine ecosystems. The researchers discussed their new Pole-to-Pole Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (P2P MBON) this week at the American Geophysical Union Fall 2018 meeting in Washington, D.C.

This illustration shows some of organisms that are part of the biodiversity of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, as well as a few of the instruments used by MBARI researchers to study biodiversity in the Sanctuary. Ilustrations by Kelly Lance.

A Goliath Grouper hanging out underneath our boat. It has been such an incredible experience documenting Looe Key @noaasanctuaries these past few days. Our marine sanctuaries are so vital to maintaining the health of oceans, as they protect not only the sea creatures that call it home but us as well. Our reefs act as a natural barrier against hurricanes. We have truly learned a lot this trip and thanks to @dive_n2_life we have been able to see the positive change that can be in the future generations.

Sweet Sea Lion 🌊 🦁! I am able to be closer than 50 yards because he is behind a fence. I am also keeping quiet and watching for any changes in behavior or agitation. The zoom on my camera is letting me look even closer from a distance! This California Sea Lion is resting during the day so he can swim and forage for food at night! 🎣

Various proposals to protect the East of Antarctica, the Weddell Sea and the Antarctic Peninsula sadly failed in gaining a global consensus back in October 2018, when nations met in Hobart, Australia, to discuss the future of this area. You can join the quest to protect the sea by spreading the word about the importance of protecting our beautiful snow white wilderness at the End of the Earth with your friends, family and work colleagues. #restoreparadise & #keepplaceswild 🌎🐋❄️Photo by James Sherwood, The Map to Paradise / @bluebottlefilms on board @oneoceanexp

Have you ever seen a school of fish underwater? When you see them huddle together for safety, you begin to realise just how easy it is to scope them up into a fishing net. This is one reason why it is so important that we make sure that there are some special areas left undisturbed by humans in the sea. 🐠🌏🌱 #restoreparadise & #keepplaceswild Photo by Danielle Ryan @bluebottlefilms / The Map to Paradise

"Filipino-At-Heart"
-
🔵Maestro's Notes: This beautiful footage was filmed on location at Apo Island, Philippines courtesy of the Executive Director of the Large Marine Vertebrate Institute of the Philippines @lamaveproject , Passionate Marine Conservationist, Wildlife Photographer and Documentary Filmmaker, My Good Friend with a Filipino Heart, Sally J Snow @sallyj.snow - I'm not normally the one filming underwater. Usually I'm filming top side and directing/producing. However for this latest project for @lamaveproject I've been underwater developing my skills and loving it. Here's a sneaky peak of a green sea turtle foraging in the shallows of Apo Island, a significant foraging area for this endangered species.
This footage will make it's way into a briefing and interpretation video featuring the turtles and the islanders. The film will be shown to tourists to educate visitors about these amazing animals as well as highlighting the value of the turtles for local livelihoods (tourism). Thanks to the Conservation Media Group for supporting this project!

#ApoIsland /ˈæpoʊ/ is a volcanic island covering 74 hectares in land area, 7 kilometers off the southeastern tip of Negros Island and 30 kilometers south of the #NegrosOriental capital of #Dumaguete in the Philippines. The name "Apo" was derived from a Filipino word for "grandchild". Apo Island was a community-organized marine sanctuaries, and as such it has been well documented by the global science community. The project was started when Dr. Angel Alcala, a marine scientist from the Silliman University Marine Laboratory introduced to the local fishermen the importance of creating a marine sanctuary in the area. Initially, there was hesitation on the part of the locals, but after a three-year dialogue, Dr. Alcala convinced the island community to establish the sanctuary. Assisted by the staff of the SU Marine Laboratory in 1982, the local fishermen selected an area along 450 meters of shoreline and extending 500 meters from shore as the sanctuary site. Since then, the project initiated on the island led to the creation of hundreds of other #MarineSanctuaries in the #Philippines.

Baited drum lines are set to be re-introduced to WA waters in January 2019. With no evidence that drum lines keep bathers safer, these funds would be better directed to proven safety mitigation strategies, or even issues that effect a lot more Australians.

The animals that take the bait will also suffer the same stress and most likely death, as witnessed in 2014 when the drum lines were last in WA waters. The public spoke out back then with record numbers turning out to rallies opposed to baited drum lines, and the drum lines were removed due to public pressure. We need your help again. Please sign the petitions that follow. If you would like to collect written signatures, get in touch so i can organise to send you a pdf. Paper petitions still hold more weight when presented to Parliament.

This footage taken by Sea Shepherd shows a dolphin caught on a drum line hook in Queensland in 2015. Victims of drum lines are not only sharks. http://bit.ly/DolphinOnDrumlineHook

I never thought I would see something like this in the Monterey Bay. Not loving it at all. As far as I’m concerned ships this size should stay well outside the Marine Sanctuary boundaries.🤢🤮🤬🖕🏽🛳

The KYLE SPANGLER, one of many Great Lakes vessels that made trips to the Atlantic in the early days of direct trade with saltwater ports. KYLE SPANGLER is a distinctive type of Great Lakes sailing craft known as a “canaller,” and retains its distinctive, boxy hull form. On November 7, 1860, the schooner RACINE collided with the SPANGLER and sent the vessel, full of corn, to the bottom of Lake Huron. The crewmen were taken safely onboard the RACINE. Though shipwrecked, the 130-foot-long sailing vessel looks much the same today as it did after coming to rest on the lake bottom in 1860. The wooden hull is nearly completely intact, save for collision damage at the starboard bow. Both masts are still standing, with booms, gaffs and associated rigging having fallen to the deck or lake bottom. The deck cabin’s outer structure is intact, as are the vessel’s wheel, windlass, centerboard winch and bilge pumps. Most impressively, is the vessel’s carved wooden nameboard, still affixed to the stern quarter where it remains legible.

Indonesia has been designated as the world’s largest sanctuary for manta rays, as well as whale sharks and other charismatic megafauna. In addition, key biodiversity hotspots such as Raja Ampat and the Savu Sea have been granted special national and regional protected status.⠀

However, it is critical that these designations are more than just sanctuaries in name alone. We must ensure that the communities that depend on these areas and species derive sustainable livelihoods, such that they ultimately become the ambassadors and greatest champions for their conservation. And it is on this principle that the @IndonesianMantaProject focuses their work.⠀

Drum lines are set to be introduced to WA waters again in January 2019. Aside from the crazy logic that baiting large hooks will somehow not draw in more sharks to a beach, drum lines (SMART or not) are a death sentence to dolphins that take the bait. They are hoping for a 30 minute response time when an alert goes off that some animal has taken the bait, but dolphins can hold their breath for around 8 minutes.
Between 1962-2014 an estimated 1,014 dolphins fell victim to the cruel Queensland Shark Control Program which includes baited drum lines.
Let's aim for smarter ways to stay safe and respect our natural environment. Please sign and share the petition to start that conversation once again. Thank you.

Facty Friday moment.
We know less about the ocean and it's inhabitants than we do the moon.

I could go into the fact that over 90% of our fisheries are in a state of collapse thanks to #overfishing & #pollution

Instead let's #celebrate our glow in the dark deep sea neighbors.

It is 2018. 4 years have passed since this infographic was created detailing the horrific losses and the number will be so much higher now. Time to review these outdated practices and start respecting ALL life with non-lethal safety options for those who choose to recreate in the ocean.

Instead of CULLING sharks, maybe we should be CALLING for the responsible reporting of facts rather than embellishments to help ratings. Sensationalising every incident does nothing but create irrational fear over something which in reality is a more than 3 million to 1 chance of occurring. This pressure encourages politicians to invest our tax dollars into ‘shark control’ instead of issues that affect a lot more Australians. On average, one woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner. These are the real issues of our day. This is where we could be making a difference.

Let the station or editor know when you see irresponsible reporting.

A new study mentioned by the Australian Marine Sciences Association in their submission letter to the NSW Government on marine sanctuaries has found that fish populations in Australia have declined overall by about 33 percent between 2005 and 2015 due to fishing pressure. This is a huge loss of fish life and another good reason to #RestoreParadise and #KeepPlacesWIld by creating #MoreMarineSanctuaries. 📩💡You can read the full letter in a link on The Map to Paradise Facebook page. 🐟🐟🐟 Photo by Danielle Ryan @bluebottlefilms

Coastlines across Australia are becoming increasingly dangerous places to swim – for sharks. Despite the fact many shark species are in decline – along the coast of WA, QLD and NSW, sharks are being trapped in nets, painfully hooked and killed in an attempt to reduce encounters with beach-goers.

Whilst efforts to minimise risk to ocean users is important, baited drum lines are not safe. They act just like any baited hook, drawing the sharks closer to popular beaches. Drum lines are an attempt by governments to be seen to be doing something, but in the process, valuable resources are being chewed up and not directed towards effective risk mitigation.

I'm no cartoonist, but i did this a few years ago to illustrate the absurdity of attempting to catch a 'guilty' shark. As things get heated on the east coast with more drum lines going in and a few tiger sharks already caught and shot in response to recent shark incidents, the rhetoric is sounding very much like the one over here in Perth during the 'Imminent/Serious threat policy' (2014-15). The news reports are sounding like scripts from the JAWS movie… 'the moment the hunter becomes the hunted’, ’from beneath the dark waters bearing its jaws’, ‘thrashing in the water... went to get the BIGGER boat’, ‘the other a 3.3m monster'
Creating a fear frenzy is neither good or accurate reporting. Sadly the many animals that get caught on the drum lines include the endangered hammerhead sharks and dolphins.

So glad to have seen the article in #vantagepoint about #oceanfest18, world tour of a collection of the most amazing short #ocean #films from across the world. Went to #glive to see it. What a delight, but also quite distressing. I urge you to go & see it. Short films of note: #touchedbytheocean #bluethefilm #thebigwaveproject #scarletstale.
Can't wait to go see world touring #banffmountainfilmfestival in #Guildford April 2019!

The New South Wales Government in Australia has backflipped on its support for a marine park for Sydney. It isn’t the first time this Government has withdrawn its support for marine sanctuaries. Australia has kickstarted a worrying trend, making the need to educate communities on protecting the sea more important than ever.
