  • Salt marshes are among the best carbon sinks, serving as an offset to climate change. But a new MBL study shows coastal nitrogen pollution could threaten that.

  • What is a Climate Park? ...And Why We Should Care

A Climate Park is an innovative approach to mitigating climate change while simultaneously making significant and sustainable environmental, economic, and social impact. Blue Carbon is the carbon (CO2) stored in coastal and marine ecosystems. Mangroves sequester and store 5-10x more CO2 than terrestrial forests and have moved to the front lines to battle the Climate Crisis. 
Following 3 years of research on mangrove restoration in Myanmar by Worldview International Foundation (WIF), in close cooperation with Pathein University and the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry, the first Climate Park was established as a Pilot Project. This groundbreaking pilot project was named in honor of one of the first environmental crusaders, explorer and archaeologist Thor Heyerdahl.

2018 brought major achievements for the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park in Myanmar: a record-breaking 93% plant survival rate, 47,000 Ha new land for planting (from washed out soil from deforestation), 2.2 million trees planted and awarded  Verified Carbon Standard Verification. This is the first Blue Carbon project in Asia able to reach this milestone with total 3.5 million tons CO2 mitigation. 
Scores of organizations and individuals are building coalitions supporting these efforts in Myanmar and to plant One Billion mangrove trees by 2023. We have just launched a new campaign seeking sponsors to plant another 300,000 trees near Thaegone Village in the Climate Park over 345 acres. 
Individuals, environmental advocacy groups and businesses can sponsor trees, learn more about Blue Carbon Reforestation and support this high-impact project at bit.ly/GlobalMangrove

  • O2 Bubbles, Oil on Canvas 36” x 60” heading to Stetson Gallery!

Please join us at Stetson Gallery for Rhythms in Nature, a series of new abstract paintings that explore how patterns found in eelgrass meadows can be interpreted into abstract motifs. Volunteering with eelgrass conservation groups in Massachusetts has expanded my understanding of the importance of seagrass habitats. I am very excited to announce BU marine scientist, Dr. Alyssa Novak will share her eelgrass research and restoration efforts she conducts in the North Shore at the opening reception.

Reception:
Sep 8th, 12-2pm 
ntrigued by the patterns and rhythms created in eelgrass habitats, I bring various lines and shapes which repeat throughout my compositions. For example, in “O2 Bubbles”, I exaggerate curvilinear shapes that resemble large scale bubbles. I zoom in to provide a fluid macro view of what oxygen bubbles may look like as seagrass releases them up into the water column and then into the atmosphere for us to breath.

  • Happy #WetlandWednesday! #DYK more than 70% of the #BlueCarbon stored by coastal wetlands is kept underground. 
Scientists have fun in the field collecting deep soil cores (soil 🌭sausages), that they analyse to quantify carbon stocks and carbon accretion rates.
