Home to more than 11,000 animals representing nearly 500 species, the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, celebrates the planet’s largest and most diverse body of water: the Pacific Ocean.
The ocean is home to many species of gelatinous animals, from sea jellies to comb jellies, as well as some tunicates, gastropods, and worms, which can all have translucent bodies similar to sea jellies. Sea jellies survive without a heart, brain, or lungs. They are 95 percent water, and their movements are governed by the flow of the water they live in. How is that possible?

Today human activity is threatening ocean health, shrinking ocean habitats and decreasing animal populations. However, human activity has caused more extinctions of land-based species and fewer in the ocean. By acting quickly we may be able to halt this trend and avoid ocean extinctions of the scale we’ve already seen on land. #NoteStream #nature Download now for free.

This jelly is often confused with Chrysaora melanaster which is much larger and found in the chilly Bering Sea waters. C.pacifica prefers sub-tropical waters 12-25°C (53.6-77°F), is much smaller, has a different coloring pattern on its bell, and more tentacles . When seen side by side, the differences between the two species is obvious in size, color, and bell markings. See what other differences there are on #NoteStream under #nature.

Drought is a regular, natural occurrence in California. Based on tree ring records for the last 1,300 years, scientists know that two mega-droughts much longer and more severe than the current one occurred in what is now the American West. Experts say water scarcity and a culture of conservation will be the new normal—and research and technology can help us evolve and prepare. Find out how. #NoteStream #nature. Download now for free.

El Niño is a global climate event that occurs at unpredictable intervals every few years, impacting weather around the world. The phenomenon gets its name, which is Spanish for “the Christ child,” from the time of year it occurs, usually in December around Christmas. Are you ready and does it really mean there will be record breaking rain for the West Coast? Learn more on #NoteStream under #nature. Click through to download the app for free.
