#Sharks, like birds, sea turtles and lobsters, likely navigate using Earth's magnetic field.

Some sponges scoot along the seafloor.

#Trailblazer #NotSpongeBob

Octopuses, like humans, sleep in two stages

What will 🌏 look like in another 100 years?

Never underestimate the power of #storytelling 🌱

An 81-year-old midnight snapper just broke this species' longevity record.

“the single biggest impediment to proper fisheries and conservation management today is the lack of this type of data.” via @hakaimagazine

Whether restoring trees or corals, #biodiversity--not simply scale--is key.

Strictly protecting certain marine areas could yield out-sized benefits for fisheries, biodiversity & climate change.


New paper ( by Purwanto & me reviewing changes in the marine protected areas in Papua, Indonesia. This region—known as the Bird’s Head Seascape—includes the most biodiverse reefs in the world and globally renowned areas like Raja Ampat. 🧵👇🏽 (1/10)

From #ghostgear to #noisepollution to deep sea mining, this immersive story illustrates marine hazards all the way down:

COVID has caused dramatic impacts on marine protected and conserved areas (MPCAs) - both for marine conservation & people who depend on them. Our new paper (led by @carol_phua) explores some of these impacts in 15 MPCAs. 🧵👇🏽 #PARKSjournalCOVID (1/8)

About the same # of coral colonies exist in the Pacific as there are trees in the Amazon or birds in the world.

Some spp. may face a lower risk of extinction than previously thought. But if #climatechange kills them, restoration is beyond our capacity.

Carbon storage increases with #biodiversity in #mangrove forests.


#ParachuteScience--where researchers from a high-income country conduct a study in a typically lower-income country w/o engaging local colleagues--is widespread in coral reef biodiversity-related research.

Collaboration strengthens people & science.

“The first step in any restoration project should always be to remove the causes of environmental decline—otherwise, history will repeat itself."

Fishploration: 🎣
introducing consumers to lesser-known but more environmentally sustainable #seafood options through fish-market tours. via @hakaimagazine

Once #seaweed takes over a reef, it's hard for corals to compete. In the Caribbean, stocking degraded reef patches with extra seaweed-eating crabs led to a dramatic increase in the number of juvenile corals & reef fish. via @AnthropoceneMag

Ever been on a dive & wondered why you're seeing so many moray eels?
#Overfishing of sharks & other predators may have knocked out their competition.

We're #hiring a Coral #ReefRestoration Task Force Coordinator to support capacity building, monitoring & QA/QC for restoration in Indonesia.

Deadline: 22 Feb. Open to Indonesian nationals.
