Good morning Orange County birders,
I am sure that many of you have been on pelagic trips aboard the Ocean Institute's R/V Sea Explorer, and perhaps seen some good birds or cetaceans, or just had good experiences on the ocean during those trips. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ocean Institute is now closed, and has lost much of its funding sources as a result of this closure. If you have the resources, please consider making a donation to help keep them going during these difficult times, with the goal of still having a boat to go on pelagic trips when this is all over. If you don't have the resources, please consider sharing one of the links below via social media. Thanks, and good birding.
