This design with a simple instruction basically allows children to create a really intricate awesome geometric pattern that they might not be able to otherwise freehand themselves. explains Aren Page.


“MPAs are one part of the management tool box….they serve as an insurance policy for fisheries, potentially enhancing some reproductive output, but also giving us an idea of what does an un-fished system look like so we can better ground truth our management models,” Eric Bjorkstedt, NMFS Fisheries Oceanographer and Adjunct Dept. of Fisheries Biology at HSU told the EcoNew’s Reports Delia Bense-Kang.

Bense-Kang talks with researchers Ian Kelmartin, Katherin Osborn, and Eric Bjorkstedt, about their MPA Baseline Monitoring projects.

 Science has often been overlooked or dismissed in the political arena. Given the current climate in Washington, it is imperative that scientists and non-scientists alike fight for, and demand, that policies affecting the environment, health, and well-being of our society be science-based and supported with facts.

"If we look at what makes up the universe, it's a little disturbing," Humboldt State University physicist CD Hoyle told the standing-room-only audience in Arcata. "It turns that most of the universe is dark energy." And we don't know what that is. "And that's a problem."
