Marine Wildlife

This series began with an educational project and tribute to my time spent sailing on the Sloop Clearwater: Life on the Husdon River.

I am now working on a similar project for my local waters, the Salish Sea, and will also be expanding to include threatened marine wildlife worldwide.
