Humpback Whale Song - An Update 

The haunting songs of Humpback Whales echo through local waters each autumn, and fill Hawaiian bays during the northern winter.  Now, research is underway to determine if populations of Humpback whales can be defined by song composition. Jim Darling, a long-time Tofino resident who has led independent whale research projects for over 30 years, presents on recent work from the field.

Ocean Acidification – What’s the Big Deal?

 

            Our world is constantly undergoing change due to human impacts. Carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels eventually finds its way into the oceans. Carbon dioxide combines with water to release hydrogen atoms, which are reducing the pH in the oceans. These acidic molecules then affect how many marine organisms grow their skeletons. These changes to animal growth will have effects throughout marine food chains.
