      If the Ocean is a reflection of us, as humanity, are we happy with what we see? I invite you to follow me beneath the looking glass… These will be non-scientific observations of a wild, wonderful world that is being dramatically altered by our every day choices. every time you look in the mirror, ask yourself, were as many of those choices good for the Ocean (and the planet at large) as could have been? Did i use use reusable, did i recycle, did i do the best i could, and how can i do better tomorrow? Can I fix what has come before? Can I at least try? I know that ‘fixing’ the damage that has already occurred is probably not entirely possible, but we can try, at very least we can limit our continuing contribution, at very best make an impact on that which has come before... (Proactive Reclamation) By documenting and sharing the underwater world i hope to expand peoples awareness… People protect what they love… ...but they must know it, to love it. for more information: ljjames@me.com btlgproject.com Filmed with a Sony CX500 in Light & Motion Stingray + housing Dual SOLA2000 lights on ULCA arms Video Diver Laura James using ISC Megalodon CCR Scooter : Halcyon HDV T16 (so that we could spend more time at depth) Huge thanks to my dive buddy Dave Stucki Music: M83 - Where the Boats Go

      • Dead/Dying seastars in West Seattle (with opening footage to show same site last year)


        from Laura James Added 44.4K 31 5

        Please report on the starfish you see on dives... (and on the beach) Upload a picture of the beach (topside) where you saw sick stars to instagram with the hashtag #sickstarfish This will put it on a map we are putting together. You will need to make sure geolocation is "on" and you are uploading from the site (not from your house). We are also working on a manual add for the site, but that is not up and running yet. If you dive at a site that has no sick seastars please upload #nosickstarfish that way we can get a baseline as well, and actually see spread over time. Tidepool walkers are also encouraged to become involved as the purple and orange starfish are often visible on low tides and you will be able to see both healthy and sick sea stars, as it is sometimes hard to tell the difference out of water, just take a picture of the starfish and upload it to instagram/twitter/facebook with the #beachstarfish and we'll forward the picture on to the experts. All data collected will be made readily available to researchers. This is where data will be showing up in real time at http://www.sickstarfish.com Enter more data at the MARINe (Multi Agency Rocky Intertidal Network) page http://www.eeb.ucsc.edu/pacificrockyintertidal/data-products/sea-star-wasting/index.html or http://www.vanaqua.org/act/research/sea-stars (Pick one as they are sharing information) Site: Cove 1, Seacrest, West Seattle, Washington State.

                      from Laura James Added 178 8 4

                      First in the series… this is just a test run, audio is a low quality scratch track lucky no dog barking in background. The idea of these videos will be to give kids/students a first look at Puget Sound critters, but not a long in depth lecture. These will be part of the multi-media curriculum that will be available mostly so that people recognize critters in the ‘next’ round, be it ROV, scuba-live-dive or almost live (pre-recorded) ‘undersea adventure’.
