California Reef Check Survey Dive

Week 2 of summer 2011 at Camp Emerald Bay has come to a close and the science center staff finally had a chance on their time off to continue surveying some transects laid out at a rocky reef not far from Parson's Landing. Significant swells and some stiff cross-currents kept us from doing as much as we would have liked, but a fun and safe diving experience was had by all.
Check out the video below of Cari moving through the kelp forest counting organisms along a transect line.
