‘ONLINE’ Beaty@Home: Marine Invertebrates of Burrard Inlet

Many of us walk along the shore of Burrard Inlet to take in the beautiful views or watch the sun set over the ocean, but beneath our feet is a wonderful and bizarre world of marine invertebrates that can go unnoticed unless you know what you are looking for.

This summer, Dr. Colin MacLeod, Curatorial Assistant for the Marine Invertebrate Collection, has been collecting and documenting the invertebrate species found under rocks and hiding in seaweed on Spanish Banks, Point Grey Park, Tower Beach, and many other sites in Burrard Inlet. You really don’t have to travel far to see some incredible marine species!

Join Colin as he talks about the biology and ecology of many of these species and find out more about these fascinating organisms.
