Save the Earth funds NOAA for a research project on the Davidson Seamount in the Pacific Ocean

The Davidson Seamount is a spectacular geologic feature on which recent explorations have documented dramatic biological discoveries (some featured on the BBC production “Planet Earth”). The exploration of Seamounts is relatively novel, because we only recently have the technology to access these deep areas. This project would fund a postdoctoral researcher to compare the biology on Davidson Seamount to other seamounts as well as non-seamount surrounding areas in the Pacific Ocean. This work may help finalize decisions on whether to protect Davidson Seamount by including it as part of the National Marine Sanctuary.
