The Boyd N. Lyon Sea Turtle Fund was created in memory of Boyd N. Lyon and provides an annual scholarship to one marine biology student whose research is focused on sea turtles. The fund was created by family and loved ones in association with The Ocean Foundation to provide support to those projects that enhance our understanding of sea turtle behavior, habitat needs, abundance, spatial and temporal distribution, research diving safety, among others.

Seven years ago, we mourned the deaths of the 11 who died in the Deepwater Horizon explosion, and watched in growing horror as a torrent of oil poured forth from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico towards some of the most abundant waters of our continent. Like today, it was spring and the diversity of life was particularly rich.

Tallahassee, Florida. April 13, 2017. For the first time in 17 years of Florida-based research, scientists have discovered a mating ground for the Endangered smalltooth sawfish. During an expedition early April to the shallow-water back-country of Everglades National Park, a research team captured, tagged, and released three adult sawfish (one male and two females) in an area previously known almost exclusively as juvenile sawfish habitat.

We know what is at stake. Over 50 square miles of estuarine biodiversity buoyed with patriotic heritage unlike anything else in the world. Mallows Bay, home to hundreds of sunken steam vessels dating back to World War I, has most recently been home to rich wildlife and a recreational jungle gym of sorts for frequent kayakers, fishermen and explorers. But why should we care so much about the outcome of its pending National Marine Sanctuary (NMS) status decision from NOAA?

The other night I shared pizza with young cousins Harry and James in Lafayette, California. I discovered that they visited one of my all-time favorite places—Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Like me, their most vivid memories were of the dolphins, the incredible wildlife and outdoor adventures to be had, in other words, the magic of Loreto.

I spent the 8th and 9th of March in Puntarenas, Costa Rica for a Central American workshop to develop capacity for foreign ministries engaged in responding to the UN General Assembly (UNGA) Resolution 69/292 request for the negotiation of a new legal instrument to address conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity beyond national jurisdictions (BBNJ) under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and help the global community implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals (especially SDG14 on ocean).
