Dr. Chelsey Crandall is back for the 10th lecture in our free “Marine Biology at Home” series: Human Dimensions of Marine Conservation. In this lecture Dr. Crandall explores the many impacts of humans on marine conservation! She talks about what drives conservation behavior, how we change people’s behavior, and how we manage when conservation conflicts with other human needs. Watch the lecture on our youtube channel:
I want to age like sea glass. Smoothed by tides, but not broken. I want my hard edges to soften. I want to ride the waves and go with the flow. I want to catch a wave and let it carry me to where I belong. I want to be picked up and held gently by those who delight in my well earned patina and appreciate the changes I went through to achieve that beauty. I want to enjoy the journey and always remember that if you give the ocean something breakable it will turn it into something beautiful. I want to age like sea glass.
Fun Fact: Seagul/Sea Gull – It’s a term you’ve used and heard a million times before, but … there’s no such bird. There’s not even such a family of birds. The term “seagull” is a colloquialism used to refer to a group of generally white-gray-and-black birds that are found (commonly, but not only) near coastal waters.
