Expedition blogs and news from the Shallow Marine Surveys Group

Introducing the team!

The full list of participants for the marine survey of Ascension Island, August, 2012.


The Shallow Marine Surveys Group is very pleased to present our team of highly qualified and dedicated individuals who will be travelling from around the world to gather in August 2012 on a tiny volcanic island in the middle of the South Atlantic.


We are confident the expedition goals to survey and catalogue the wide diversity of marine life found there will benefit from the collaboration of such a diverse international team bringing a wide range of backgrounds and experience to the effort.


In the weeks to come we will be introducing the individuals involved with more detail on their backgrounds and personal objectives for the expedition. We will also invite team members to post their own thoughts and experiences as they take part in the expedition.

Sounds like a great expedition. I'd like to write about it on www.sthelenaonline.org . Does it go further, in terms of research, and previous expeditions have done? And what are the chances of a follow-up expedition to St Helena, where little is known about endemic fish species, according to the Red List?
