Good luck in your quest.I am a feminist I guess.and 53.but I do enjoy your stories and pictures.
Jackie, love your photos and video . Good luck in your quest , such a beautiful woman. Also good that you are so passionate about your work.Best of Luck
Larry – Thank you so, so much for your response. I so appreciate hearing all of that and it is a great kindness that you would share it.
Jackie, Fabulous piece of honest creative writing and a brilliant idea. Most likely your wish is on it’s way since the moment you pushed publish. I have one of my own that I am tossing your way because I was moved by your realness and I believe you might have some contacts given your title. I’m Ari Vanderschoot from Waves of Love Ocean Expeditions, (FB page) which is at this point a vision, a big beautiful sailboat and me. I need partner(s) or a buyer or something to help me move this vision into any direction that will help the ocean and get the boat ready for her mission. I have been working on creating a platform for ocean activism,education, research for a few years now but I lost my last partner as he was more of a dependent with addiction problems than a partner and I cannot do it by myself. I am looking for organizational skills, funding or fundraising skills and seamanship or fix all things boat skills and people who share my passion for making right with the oceans
If anything or anyone comes to mind ,please share your thoughts. Thanks and keep up the great work. Thanks Ari
Hello Ari, Hereby your wishes are further out into the world as well. What immediately comes up in me is that the best thing would be to bundle with an existing organization that shares the same ideals and ethics. You benefit from their infrastructure and boat repair skills and they benefit from you and the boat? You may be aware of Raincoast Research for example.
Thank you so for your feedback. On the fishing front . . . lines remain in the water!
Wonderful page! I’m running a marine detective work myself on humpback whales in the North Atlantic, see e.g. recent blog-post: http://nordlysfoto.blogspot.no/2012/11/humpback-whale-photo-id-project-knlhval.html and especially liked the piece on barnacles
All the best from Norway, Fredrik
Hello Frerik, Thanks so for this note. I see that we are definitely on the same “case” in our different parts of the world and – it’s a big case! Wishing you great success from the Northeast Pacific.
We found a very unusual sea creature in tribune bay on hornbyisland. It is transparent with plates down its back reminiscent of stegosaurous plates. It moves by undulating back aand forth and has rudimentary eyes, a bulbous head with an open mouth with sea anenome like fronds at themouth edge. A spine and gi tract are also visible insidethe body, it can adhere to surfaces with a suction cup on its belly. Any ideas?
Hello Jasmine, Your great description leads me to think you were looking at a hooded nudibranch. See my previous blogs about this remarkable species of sea slug at this link http://themarinedetective.com/2010/09/07/theyre-back-hooded-nudibranchs/

I was recommended to you by John Carswell and Dave Neill. I spotted some Orca in Baynes Sound on Labor Day and I was wondering if you could tell me what pod they were from. Just curious. Can you let me know if you got my email with pics. John tells me you were busy back then so I understand if you take some time to get back to me. Just wanted to know you got the email alright.
Cheers and keep up the great work
Hello Brian, I did not get the email with photos and would very much like to be of use and ensure too that the images are passed on DFO. I will email you now.
