Has this week’s focus on Journey into the Deep: Discovering New Ocean Creatures left you wanting more? Never fear, there is always more!On our website, you’ll soon find additional materials including a slide show of some of the amazing photos in the book, links to websites where you can see video clips of ocean creatures, and a note from the author discussing what we know (and don’t know) about how the Gulf oil spill is affecting deep-sea life. A free discussion guide is already available on the site–just go to the page for the book and you can download it from there.
And don’t forget about the official Census of Marine Life website. The COML, after all, is the inspiration behind this book. It concludes this year, and this month there will be an online presentation of a special news conference at the Royal Institution in London, featuring ten years of collaborative, global research on the diversity, distribution, and abundance of marine life—past, present, and future.
