Updates from the field, about the work of Bethany Augliere, including research, photography and writing.

New piece in Oceanograhphic Magazie

Hi everyone, I’ve got a new feature article in Oceanographic Magazine for issue 9. I’m excited because this is my first time working with this magazine.

It’s a story about the summer the Wild Dolphin Project showed up to our field site of 28 years, and the dolphins were missing. It’s a little different than a lot of my science writing because it’s a personal story about my work and what it was like thinking that the dolphins could’ve all died. When we did find them, the next question was: Why did they leave?

Recent work

Hi everyone,

I haven’t posted here in awhile, so I figured I would share some of my most recent published work.

I wrote two news articles for Hakai Magazine based on new research, including one on the eco-tourism industry of feeding wild dolphins in Australia and one on personality in sea lions.

An endangered Galapagos sea lion I photographed in 2006.

I also wrote a piece for National Geographic on seal cannabalism and a piece for Science Magazine on box jellyfish!

And finally, I wrote and shot photos for a piece in Vero Beach Portfolio magazine on Dr. Chelsea Bennice, otherwise known as “Octo Girl.” She studies — yes, you guessed it — octopus!

Mantas in Florida!

Check out this article in Scuba Diver Life about manta rays in Florida, featuring the work of Marine Megafauna Foundation's Florida Manta Project.

It also includes several of my photos and a video I shot of a hook removal on a manta, nicknamed Stevie Nicks by the scientists studying her.
