UC Davis project scientist Kristin Aquilino directs the Bodega Marine Laboratory's white abalone captive breeding program. Last week marked the first time BML captive-bred white abalone were released to the ocean in hopes of saving the species.
World Oceans Day is June 8. It’s a day across the world to celebrate our large expanses of sea and to collaborate for a better future.
And this is just what UC Davis scientists are doing. Our researchers are discovering how climate change and human garbage hurt our oceans and their flora and fauna.
Efforts to bring populations of endangered white abalone back from the brink of extinction through captive breeding appear to be working, according to scientists at the UC Davis Bodega Marine Laboratory.
