The Seattle Times has published a couple of interesting stories about different inhabitants of Puget Sound – some apparently are just visiting, while others make their homes in the Sound.
First up, there’s this story of long-beaked tropical dolphins sighted in the Sound around the Olympia area.
And then there’s this coverage of the life cycle of a mother octopus, including some video shot by divers.
I’m also catching up with stories recently published by the Kitsap Sun:
- The Puget Sound Partnership recently chose targets for Puget Sound recovery. Here’s a story about that by Kitsap Sun reporter Chris Dunagan, and the Partnership's news release on the subject.
- Dunagan also has this story about how the Puget Sound Partnership is making the rounds and asking local governments what they are doing to help improve the Sound’s health.
- And here’s a look at how researchers are exploring if they can help restore depleted kelp beds in Hood Canal and Puget Sound.
