LSS 65: LSS visits Shoals Marine Laboratory Pt.2

In this second episode of the Shoals Marine Laboratory series, Mark Sarvary visited White and Seavey islands to talk to the Tern conservation team about their research. Mark and co-instructor Kitty Gifford took Applied Science Communication students to the islands where they had a chance to handle the seabirds and these students briefly reflected on their experiences.

In the late 19th century Appledore Island was an artist colony, and Celia Thaxter’s garden was the center of this colony. What happened to this garden since then? Mark Sarvary investigates it in this episode.

The hosts, Laura Mortelliti and Jasmin Mack received a quick visit from Lindsey Baxter of the Harrington Lab, and she spoke about a new Citizen Science project, identifying Asian Tiger Mosquitos. Those who are interested in being involved should visit the Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases​​.
