The sediments at Virginia’s Carmel Church Quarry have yielded over 50 fossil species, including whales, sharks, turtles, crocodiles, sea cows, and land animals. We are trying to save these remains before they’re lost to erosion.
Sea turtles are the ancient mariners of our oceans. After hatching on a beach, they cross thousands of miles of ocean to reach areas with food. Yet, little is known about where these green sea turtles go and how they migrate.
Sharks are one of the most feared, yet imperiled creatures on our planet. We plan to tag and track sharks with satellite tags to identify their ‘hot spots’ for mating, feeding, and pupping, and to protect them at these sites.
In the vast abyss of the deep-sea, where light cannot penetrate and productive habitats are scarce, sound could play key ecological roles, but these soundscapes have never been studied. You can be the first to listen!
