Today Susie and I worked on our project and collected more research, but when I was analyzing the data Edd informed me that there is a confounding factor. We didn't record what type of coral we were looking at each time we collected data. There are more fish around branching coral (like in the picture) because there are more places to hide. Conversely, less fish hang around boulder coral. So, we can't tell if the amount of fish was because of the overal health or the type of coral. So, to have a more accurate study, we will probably have to collect enough data tomorrow to replace today's and yesterday's. It's a real bummer (like a real bummer) but we can do it! We have enough time. The real problem is that it's supposed to be more wavy tomorrow than today.
We just went crab hunting. Well, that's what it turned into for part of it. (One was named Crunando!!!) We originally went down to the beach to look for bioluminescent algae. We saw two teeny tiny little dots of it, but we mostly looked at the sky. It was partially cloudy and made the stars look really cool. We had red lights and could barely see and barely tell where the ocean was! White light is all that's allowed on the beach because white light disorients turtles.
*sticks finger into hole* *screams* I didn't touch anything, I just got scared.
You don't see the lump?!
