The SeaDoc Society and YMCA Camp Orkila present “Exploring the Salish Seafloor: things you never knew” by Gary Greene of the SeaDoc Society on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m., at Emmanuel Parish Hall, Orcas Island.

The topside world presents a wide variety of naturally occurring communities inhabited by plants and animals adapted to survive in each special place. The underwater world is no different.

However, for people working to recover the Salish Sea, it’s been harder to protect threatened marine creatures and their critical underwater habitats simply because it’s so difficult to find them. Beneath the surface of the Salish Sea lie a dazzling variety of habitats.

SeaDoc’s exciting new Tombolo Seafloor Mapping Laboratory is addressing real-time conservation needs by pinpointing Salish Sea habitats.

The Marine Science Lecture Series is free to the public.  For more information visit http://www.seadocsociety.org.
