MARINE PROTECTED AREA MONITORING WITH CITIZEN SCIENCE

To All,

This is a message from the California Ocean Protection Council,
California Academy of Sciences, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife with opportunities for activists to engage in water protection activities.

Citizen science – the involvement of non-scientists in the production of scientific knowledge – can generate biodiversity data at spatial and temporal scales difficult to achieve by other approaches. Our team – a collaboration between the California Academy of Sciences, the California Ocean Protection Council, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife – is building the capacity to use citizen science observations to understand and monitor biodiversity across California’s Marine Protected Area (MPA) network.

Over the last decade, the Citizen Science team at the Academy has been developing a community of naturalists – scientists and non-scientists alike – working together to document biodiversity, connecting people to their local nature and simultaneously collecting data critical to science and management. In particular, a number of ongoing Academy citizen science initiatives focus on California’s coastal ecosystems. These include Snapshot Cal Coast – an annual California statewide effort to document our coastal biodiversity – as well as community bioblitzes and intertidal monitoring.

All these biodiversity observations are collected and aggregated using a common platform – iNaturalist. iNaturalist is a global network of naturalists, citizen scientists, and biologists contributing biodiversity observations over space and time. It achieves this via a set of technological tools, which facilitate the recording, sharing and visualization of detailed biodiversity information.

Our team is developing innovative approaches and tools (MPA Explorer app in development; Snapshot Cal Coast app in development) to make use of the Academy’s citizen science efforts and iNaturalist community-contributed observations in support of the State of California’s long-term MPA Monitoring Action Plan. Our aims are twofold. First, to provide resource managers with a framework for integrating iNaturalist and Snapshot Cal Coast observations into long-term Marine Protected Area monitoring. Second, to understand the effects of changing ocean conditions on California coastal biodiversity by looking for patterns in these data over space and time, such as species range shifts or changes in community diversity.

You can help us! Imagine you could reliably estimate any current or future property of coastal ecosystems to facilitate your professional and/or recreational activity. What would you like to know about biodiversity within and outside Marine Protected Areas and across California’s coast? Are you interested in how people interact with coastal ecosystems, where and when they go, and what they choose to observe? If you have unanswered questions you would like to share, please take 5 minutes to answer our survey.

Please share this announcement with anyone who may be interested in this project.
Thank you,

  1. Dear Sir/Madam

    The letter below was sent to the Duke of Kent and leaked by a concerned fellow brother. I ask that you please consider it very carefully. I urge you to check the facts claimed below everything stated is factual and mind blowing.

    This is for the Duke of Kent, Master Freemason from a concerned brother.

    The number 77 has now been made public and spread over the internet. The fact you used plane 77 to hit the pentagon which is built on the meridian west line of 77 degrees by Freemasons and the fact the pentagon has 7 floors and is 77 feet high has drawn attention to your number 77.

    It is public the fact that London also had the date of 77 and that the train used in the bombing had the stock car number of c77, with the bus used also having a fleet number of 177 means you have quite frankly given away the fact that 911 and 77 is linked to you (Freemasonry) and the royal family.

    The internet shows how many royal addresses have the number 77 and its many. The two wedding cars used on TV recently by William and Pippa respectively both had number plates with the number 77. You may as well let out the biggest secret with 77 and that’s the fact its all about reflection yes the letter B separates to become 13 and yes two sevens in reflection make a pyramid or triangle which is protected by all sorts of hocus pocus the Freemasons learn.

    You also have merged with the Catholic church which has exposed the fact that you both use 77 in an esoteric way. You need 77 votes to become pope and many of their addresses have the number 77 just like the Royal family. So I would expect some time soon for you and your family along with the Catholic church (snake) to be accused of terrorism which can all be proven by the number 77.

    You can contact me at the email above and for gods sake no more 77.

    Wolf

    If you have understood what has been said above then I imagine your in shock yes 911 and 77 were both carried out by our elite, US and UK Freemasons, Royals and the Catholic church and 77 and a lot of research proves it.

    Yours Sincerely

    Terry Saunders
