Ocean Trackers: The Movement, Migration, and Growth of Animals in the Ocean

November 23, 2019 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

Cape Perpetua Fall Speaker Series – Presentations begin at 11:00am

Jessica will talk about the approaches she uses to reconstruct how animals move around the ocean and how the environment can influence their growth and survival. Her approach combines field collections with the chemical and structural analysis of animal hard parts, such as otoliths (fish ear stones) and shells. She will present examples from her research, including studies on the early marine residence of Chinook salmon, determining natal origins of Pacific lamprey, and the animals that crossed the Pacific Ocean on marine debris generated during the 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami.

***Parking & seating limited. Please plan accordingly.

The event is free, but a Northwest Forest Pass, Oregon Coast Passport, federal recreation pass, or $5 day-use fee is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and at some trailheads and day use sites. For more in-formation on these events, contact the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center at 541-547-3289.
