Tutka Bay Exploration

May 15 2015

Expedition Video

This summer, I'll continue working as a Naturalist Guide at a small lodge in Tutka Bay, Alaska. Tutka Bay is part of Kachemak Bay, which has one of the richest marine environments in the world. We experience extreme tides (up to 28 vertical feet of tide swing in 6 hours), which means many opportunities to explore unique ecosystems. There are more than 450 marine invertebrates! We see humpback, minke, and orca whales. Bioluminescence is something I also hope to video. I've been documenting sea star wasting syndrome in the area since May 2013. My blog Stay Curious (www.stay-curious.com)) and my Stay Curious Facebook page (www.facebook.com/StayCuriousKaryn)) are where I will be posting updates about the activities.
