Working with LiMPETS in Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary

Spoke with Monika Lynn Krach from the LiMPETS|Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary to collaborate in Sand crab collection as well as future student education.  Monika runs the program for kids learning science through intertidal and sandy beach surveys and has collected more sand crabs for the project!  We are sharing procedural information as well as data as the group is tracking parasites inside of the sand crabs.  I will be creating a video for the students explaining the micro plastics procedure and writing in the LiMPETS blog to share my research.  I am very excited to have more groups involved in the education of the public and hopefully some ideas on how to fix the problem!
