Bowdoin’s Janet Gannon joins a panel of marine experts on public radio August 26 to speak about sea life in Maine and the shifting ocean ecosystem. Airing at noon to 1 p.m., the “Maine Calling” show was organized by Charlotte Rutty ’16, who interned with MPBN this summer. “The show will be about what cool creatures these ocean lovers spot out on the water, as well as how this may be changing,” Rutty said.
Gannon will discuss these issues on air with Adam Baukus, a researcher from the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, and with Casco Baykeeper Joe Payne. Listeners are invited to call in with questions and their own observations. In addition to teaching marine biology at Bowdoin and providing logistical, scientific and GIS support every summer at the Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island, Gannon is an avid sailor who writes about her ocean explorations on her blog, An Ocean Lover in Maine.
Gear up for the show with this mini-documentary about a Bowdoin student’s investigation of green crabs in Harspwell Sound – and learn more about what’s been going on at Bowdoin’s Coastal Studies Center this summer.
