Pause

Hi all, how is everyone doing? Hopefully you are well. If not, know you are not alone! It’s been awhile since I wrote on here (sorry fam!). Things have been… different. Really different. I won’t go into detail here – I am working on a detailed, thoughtful, response about it all coming soon (Don’t worry... Continue Reading →

Numb

Numbness so profound that even the sky seems to have been tipped and drained of color   ~ Katie Dion

50th Anniversary of Earth Day!

Hello friends! Happy Earth Day! What an odd one huh? Many of us probably planned on or traditionally do something fun and/or relaxing outside in nature on today. Yeeeeetttt here most us are. Inside, online. Pretty much the opposite of what today is all about. If you were able to get out and about (safely!... Continue Reading →

The Shark Lady

In my camp, starting tomorrow is our Shark Week! Dun, dun, dun! All day, every day, each grade will learn about all things sharks (and a little about rays, their close relatives. Because why not?

However, such an important topic deserves to be talked about more than on just one day! What exactly is biodiversity? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Bio = life,... Continue Reading →

Fiercely Threatened

So fierce! Or so the movies would tell you. In fact, Carcharhinus plumbeus, or sandbar sharks (sometimes also called brown or thickskin sharks) are typically very calm. If you were to be in the water with them, they’d likely ignore you or more likely immediately swim away from you. In fact, that’s what pretty much... Continue Reading →

Large and in Charge on the Endangered List

Last Friday was Endangered Species Day here in the U.S. (maybe elsewhere too, but for sure here). Sadly, as of the beginning of 2019, about 98,500 species of animals and plants are on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List (aka, the IUCN Red List as it most commonly referred to). Some of... Continue Reading →
