This multi-part series features five women who are at the tops of their fields in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Over the 2015-16 school year, one week will be dedicated to each person, highlighting their education, careers and innovative contributions to their various disciplines — including the discovery of new species, the exploration of hostile ecosystems and the conservation of marine species.
This week, schools are encouraged to submit students’ questions to Ruth via the Oceanscape Network.
Ruth is also sharing her shark conservation message with students throughout Oregon as part of a community service effort with Barnes and Noble (Tualatin) and throughout the world through Skype interviews.
Go Ruth. And thank you for helping raise awareness of sharks.
This summer, museums and science centers throughout the country will offer WhaleTimes’ Creep into the DEEPEND summer camps! Meet our amazing DEEPEND scientists, see their photos, videos, play games, make crafts and more. Check back in to find out if your local museum will join us — or ask your local museum or science center if they’ll be offering Creep into the DEEPEND as part of their summer camp fun.
Throughout 2015 and 2016, Oregon Coast Aquarium’s Oceanscape Network is honoring five amazing women helping to explore, study, and save the ocean — including WhaleTimes’ very own Ruth A. Musgrave and Tamara Frank.
Did you identify the scariest thing in the sea? Did you guess jelly, ctenophore, or maybe a salp?
You’d be wrong. One of the scariest things in the sea is trash that escapes from our homes, schools, and lives. If it’s hard for us to identify, you can see why animals like sea turtles, seabirds and others accidently eat trash.
The DEEPEND Research team aboard the R/V Point Sur, sent us a Postcard from the DEEPEND.
