Census Highlighted on Canadian Television

The Census has been featured in a half hour television segment on the Canadian Broadcasting Coporation’s show “Land and Sea.” The show visited the Fundy Isles in the Gulf of Maine to film NaGISA researchers as they sampled the intertidal and subtidal zone. The segment provides an overview of the Census as a whole and a detailed look at NaGISA research in the Gulf of Maine, which is led by Peter Lawton, Centre for Marine Biodiversity and Gerhard Pohle, Huntsman Marine Science Centre. The full video, which features both above and underwater footage and interviews, is available online at the CBC Land and Sea website (requires Real Player to view): Land and Sea.
