November ecosystem services photo contest winner

Congratulations to this month’s winner – Nicolas de Witt of Fanny Bay Oysters who was awarded $100 for his photo.

Something caught his eye while inspecting Manila Clam beds. A fish had laid several eggs in one of the panels that covers and protects the clams. They stood out from the rocky beds in the light of his headlamp, otherwise he might never have noticed them.

Photos and captions for the next contest are due December 15th. Contest link
