Picked up 2 SOLVE bags of marine debris this morning....including 3 red bulbs, 3 Japanese plastic bottles with lids, plenty of blue and white plastic pieces, styrofoam, 3 toothbrushes. The squid egg cases just one of many, too numerous to count, being stranded in the waves. Seemed "plastic-like" but gelatinous. Have no idea what it is....

Mile 313

Tolovana Park north, Haystack Rock

April 25, 2024

Overall, Haystack Rock is a treasure trove of marine biological diversity, from invertebrates and pelagic birds to marine mammals, with an active education program for curious beach visitors. The best tidepool invertebrate diversity today was observed at the south end of Haystack Rock in the area often referred to as "The Needles. As I was tidepooling, I heard multiple beach visitors asking about sea slugs and how to locate nudibranchs.
