Our June Guest speaker will be:


Leslie Harris

With the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

Her topic will be:

Hitch-Hiking Aliens: Unexpected Consequences of the Japanese Tsunami".  The destructive earthquake of 2011 followed by an even more devastating tsunami swept millions of pieces of debris of all sizes from coastal areas into the ocean.  Many of these were colonized by marine animals endemic to the northwest Pacific.  As ocean currents moved the debris eastward some of these animals flourished, including species considered to be among the top 100 invasive species.  Now that they've arrived on the U.S. west coast what are the possible consequences to native ecosystems and fisheries?  And what can be done about it?
