The trash team was at it again! Michaela Miller and I presented at the California Channel Islands Symposium on October 5th. I presented my project on the ingestion of micro plastics in sand crabs and she presented on her Marine debris project. Both of us are looking to move onto graduate school in the Fall of 2017.
I am lucky to get to work for UC Santa Barbara on the S.O.N.G.S. Project as a field technician in the Salt marsh. I am having a great time learning about all of the fish, identifying the different species of Gobies and Invertebrates. We spend time identifying birds as well as plants throughout the marsh.
