Seen on the Beach
How excited were we to see one of our new dune signs installed at Millway Beach in Barnstable!?! This sign is just one of several that feature winning artwork from a contest we held last winter. Students from across Massachusetts created artworks to depict the need to protect dunes from foot traffic. Dunes provide habitat for many animals including rare birds and they are the first line of defense against storms, waves, and flooding. The students also voted in our winning sign slogan: Dunes protect us -- let's protect them! These signs, provided free to towns, can now be seen at beaches throughout Massachusetts.
Look what Sea Grant Research Coordinator Jennie Rheuban found while doing some sampling in Barnstable this summer! "This is the first seahorse I've ever seen in the wild!" says Rheuban. Cape Cod is the northern limit of the seahorse's range, but it's rare to see one. This little one had attached itself to an oyster cage. After admiring it, she released released it and watched it swim away.
