We're moving!

We've finally figured out the root cause of our many recurring problems with the web site. The short story - we're switching to a new host. Once the domain transfer is done (within the next few days) we'll be back online with lots of new updates, including the new CEDO-cam!

April In Action

Research and education in the estuaries and the inter-tidal zone of the upper Gulf of California continues as warm spring temperature embrace the region. Oyster Catchers and the protected Least Terns are nesting in Estero Morua and strong winds brought the carcass of a whale to Playa Miramar.

The warm water has led many invertebrates to reproduce, like the California Sea Hares which can be seen during low tides around their pink spaghetti egg masses. Snails can also be seen laying eggs on the underside of basalt boulders.

Naturalists Marilyn Malone and Betty Hupp have been regulars on CEDO tidepool tours and are going to publish a field guide that focuses on the inter-tidal organisms of Puerto Peñasco.

Students from a teachers’ college in Mexicali spent two days engaging in environmental education activities and local high school students stopped by to get ideas for CEDO’s water conservation contest.
