A DAY IN THE LIFE AS RACE ROCKS ECOGUARDIAN
Hello from Race Rocks
Salinity and sea water temperature collected daily for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) at peak flood current. This data has been collected for decades and is an important resource in tracking slow changes over time.
Clean solar panels as needed with collected rain water. These panels get extremely dirty during gull season!
Watching for boating violations, wildlife violations, injured animals, migrating animals, interesting animal behaviors: photograph and report as appropriate.
Weekly animal census: Counting every mammal and bird within the reserve from the lighthouse. Using a spotting scope, binoculars, and sometimes even regular camera, Mara and Kai counted over 700 gulls in mid July.
