2018 Student Webinar Series

We are excited to announce the second of two FREE live webinars this spring. Educators may bring their students or attend on their own. It is a great opportunity for young people in particular to learn about conservation, citizen science, and careers in marine science.


May 9 @ 1:00 pm ET

Citizen Science on the Beach: Research and Outreach with California Grunion

Dr. Karen Martin (Pepperdine University) and Melissa Studer (Beach Ecology Coalition)

The spectacular midnight runs of California Grunion are well known to Californians. This endemic silverside fish, found only off California and Baja California, shares critical spawning habitat with millions of beach goers along one of the world’s most heavily populated coastlines. Spawning occurs during spring and summer, the times of heaviest human use. Although regulations offer some protection, human impacts on California Grunion include a recreational fishery with bare-handed catching, and habitat loss from shoreline armoring and beach erosion. This webinar will examine the adaptations and adventures of these amazing fish in the California beach sand, and the influence of citizen scientists called Grunion Greeters on beach management and protection of this charismatic species.
