It's Lions Bay for MLSS-BC this time

Marine Life Sanctuaries Society's (MLSS) first Beach Interpretation Program for 2013 was at Kelvin Grove, Lions Bay last April 7, 2013. Beach Interpretation Program is an MLSS activity that engages local communities to be aware of their local marine environments.

Dr. Deng Palomares and Dr. Nicolas Bailly joined this activity. According to Dr. Bailly, it was an informative event for locals on different organisms that are found just right under where they live. He also added that it was not destructive because all organisms taken from the bay was returned to approximately where they were collected.

Beach Interpretation Program is an annual event of MLSS.
