What’s Happening at the Gulf of The Farallones and What Every Member of The SSS Needs to Know


SSS member Carliane Johnson collects samples. Not seen, but there: sharks!

Please join us for a presentation on the “At-Sea Research of the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary (GFNMS).” Hear about ocean surveys that are being conducted and what this information is telling us about the importance of the sanctuary for birds, whales, white sharks and other wildlife.. Environmental consultant and occasional contract staff to GFNMS, Carliane Johnson, will provide this special presentation on the upwelling nutrient soup that supports an incredible foodweb from the tiniest of krill to the largest animals on earth, and how these surveys are helping us understand oceanic changes. 
The presentation will follow the Vallejo 1-2 skippers’ meeting, Wednesday October 19 at 1930 hrs at the Island Yacht Club.  Feel free to pass this announcement to others and invite family and friends, too.
