Boat trip out to the continental shelf.


Eastern Australia

11/24/2012: The last big adventure on my trip was a boat trip out to the continental shelf off of Sydney. We headed out on the boat early in the morning for a nine hour ocean trip. Not much to report, but there was a constant stream of gulls, shearwaters, jaegers, petrels, and albatrosses around the boat. The scientists on the boat even caught a few albatross in order to tag them.
