  • Fish consumption advisories for expecting mothers fail to cover all types of contaminants
    Fish consumption advisories for expecting mothers are ineffective in reducing infant exposure to contaminants like persistent organic pollutants. The researchers' model estimates that women who stop eating fish shortly before or during their pregnancy may only lower their child's exposure to POPs by 10 to 15 per cent.
  • Saving the lesser prairie chicken: What landowners should know
    The recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announcement, listing the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species, brings to mind how agricultural producers, livestock ranchers and those with land enrolled in CRP could be affected. The listing might pose a challenge for some landowners, particularly in western Kansas, where the lesser prairie chicken lives. Significant habitat changes must occur to meet the 67,000-bird decade goal, and those changes will most likely have to come from livestock ranchers and grazers implementing conservation practices that benefit lesser prairie chickens.

  • Ocean acidification robs reef fish of their fear of predators
    Research on the behavior of coral reef fish at naturally-occurring carbon dioxide seeps in Milne Bay in eastern Papua New Guinea has shown that continuous exposure to increased levels of carbon dioxide dramatically alters the way fish respond to predators. 

ReefID's Most Wanted

most wanted - nudibranchs

ReefID's Most Wanted feature is a way to participate and have fun with ReefID's efforts to target and fill a specific area of the identifier.

 

Each quarter the wanted poster will display a specific inhabitant we'd like our users to focus on to fill the database. In addition to being posted in your personal galleries, a specific gallery will be set up to display most wanted submissions with links back to your individual profiles.

 

From these submissions, ReefID will select the entries that best help others identify what they see to add to the identifier as well as special submissions and photographers that will be displayed on the home page.

 

To participate, create a new adventure in your account, upload images and we'll do the rest.   All galleries created in the respective most wanted period will be inspected for possible entries and placed into the appropriate most wanted galleries. A note in the description field regarding what you think you have photographed and were you were when you too the picture is always helpful. 

 

If you are not a photographer but would still like to participate, help us identify.  Use the comments section underneath each image in the most wanted galleries to give us your best guess at what we're looking at (Comming Soon!).  A special shout out will be given to all that do their part.

 

Happy hunting!
