I wrote recently about collecting stingrays in the Keys for my research.  A few days ago, after finishing collecting data, I was able to release them back out into the ocean!  I love this part of my job!!

Here are a couple more photos of that manatee… (thanks Laura!)

That’s me…………freaking out!

    OH YAY…a happy ending for the stingrays…I love that part.

    Looks like quite the grand life you’re mapping out for yourself …and the oceans and all those critters are so lucky to have you on their side.

    Your awesome grandparents shared your blog with me and I’m so glad they did…have a great time in Hilton Head with the clan.
