Census of Marine Life


A few years ago there began a monumental mapping/taxonomic project called the Census of Marine Life to identify the thousands upon thousands of types of oceanic life not yet explored... as well as the few humans have explored.  Sherman's Lagoon decided to play along.  The COML is still going.  And, on top of that, if you want to get involved, over at the citizen-scientist site Zooniverse there is a Sea Floor Explorer project where every-day people can help comb through thousands of photos of the ocean floor identifying all the crazy stuff that can be found there.
