Earth isn't the only ocean world in our solar system. Oceans could exist in diverse forms on moons and dwarf planets, offering clues in the quest to discover life beyond our home planet.

Join us March 25 for a Hangout on Air, as we study the American eel and other species along the coast of Brooklyn using eel mops.
 
#WCSEelsHoA
Throughout NY State and beyond, citizen scientists are rising up to protect a vulnerable species in decline, the American eel. A migratory fish with a large range and fascinating life cycle, the American eel is born in the Sargasso Sea and enters North American estuaries as transparent glass eels, eventually returning to the Atlantic years later to spawn.

A team of of scientists, students, and educators led by WCS is collecting data at sites near the NY Aquarium and the Bronx Zoo. Using eel mops and other techniques, data are collected and shared with partners to inform statewide conservation decisions. As they count, weigh and release glass eels and gather other environmental data, these volunteers are learning about the health of the wildlife and ecosystems found in our backyards.

Meet the experts –

Jon Forrest Dohlin, WCS VP and Director, NY Aquarium
As Director of the NY Aquarium, Jon oversees the care and exhibition of over 12,000 animals representing 395 species, as well as the construction of a new $150M Ocean Wonders exhibit and the post-Hurricane Sandy rebuilding of the aquarium. In partnership with the WCS Marine Program, Jon also guides the NY Seascape field conservation program, which researches great whale migrations, sand tiger shark habitats, anadromous fish populations, fisheries policy, and of course, American eels, among other species. Both a biologist and architect by training, Jon joined WCS in 1997 and worked as an Exhibit Designer and Project Manager prior to leading the aquarium. He also serves on several Brooklyn boards and councils, including as Chair of the Alliance for Coney Island.

Melissa Carp, Conservation Educator, WCS NY Aquarium
Melissa has been an instructor at the NY Aquarium for over 15 years, where she inspires children to care about and make an impact on the world around them. She teaches school groups through a variety of programs, including citizen science projects and summer camp. Before coming to the Aquarium, Melissa worked with homeless families at a NYC shelter, connecting children to the city’s nature and biodiversity.

We hope you can tune-in. You can ask us about the American Eel Project via the Q&A app or using the hashtag #WCSEelsHoA .

If you’re out on the water near New York, look out for a blur of blue darting below the surface. Blue sharks, so named for the color on the top-- or dorsal side-- of their bodies, frequent our area this month. If you’ve been out on the water lately, what have you spotted? #MigratingNow

They have a lot of amazing exhibits here but are still under construction. Hurricane Sandy caused many exhibits to be in need of repair. When repairs are done this place is going to be great. Great location, by the beach and you get to see organisms that you don't normally get to see.

Considering they're still rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy, there's not much to see at the moment. If you don't see the sea lion show, you'll be done in a half hour. 4 stars because prior to Sandy, this was such a cool place with a lot to see, and I'm confident it'll be awesome again once construction is completed. The gift shop has nice souvenirs!

4 years and counting for it to be fixed. Either don't charge or change the prices. Full price for a couple of exhibits. Terrible.... in and out in about 20 minutes. Wouldn't mind if I went with just my wife. But when your paying prices like that, definitely not worth it.

This place was better before hurricane sandy. A lot of construction still going on and hopefully it will be great again. They have great tanks on display but the bigger items are lacking.

It was under renovations when we went, so the price was lower, but we also didn't get to see everything. There is a seal show that was super cute, and during it they talked about conservation and the importance of taking care of our planet and animals. I think that's very important, so I really appreciated them integrating it into the show. Above the big tank, there's a covered seating area that is so relaxing, you can see the ocean and feel the breeze. It's not quiet because there's tons of kids, haha. But it was still a nice little area to take a break and cool off. In the gift shop, I asked if all the merchandise earnings go directly back into the zoo and animal care, and she said yes.

Fantastic fun place for the whole family. I would recommend that you get the annual family membership to save on repeat visits. The dolphin and seal show is very interesting

Still not fully mended from "Sandy." Should be completely rebuilt by summer 2018. Still a dun stop with some really cool animals to see.
