Time Change

Light to Moderate West winds all day. Clear skies. West swell.

With the high tides and the swell running most of the animals in the reserve are still staying on Greater Race Rock, with some sea lions on the south rocks. There were some massive groups of sea gulls out on the water today.

With the time change, remember that the times written in the Canadian tide and current guides are the actual times of high and low tides, and max flood, ebb, and slack tides (up until yesterday you should have been adding an hour).

Sylvia Earle is an all-star marine scientist, a tireless conservation advocate, and a powerful and charismatic speaker. In this TED talk she talks about ‘the vital blue heart of our planet’ and our need to protect it. And if you have a moment look at Mission Blue which was formed in response to Sylvia Earle’s TED Prize Wish, where she urged people “to use all means at your disposal — films, expeditions, the web, new submarines — to create a campaign to ignite public support for a global network of marine protected areas; Hope Spots large enough to save and restore the blue heart of the planet.”
