Beginning in early to mid- 2015, San Diego non-profit Ocean Sanctuaries is planning to give SCUBA divers an opportunity to contribute to a citizen science survey of the warship Yukon, which was sunk off the coast of San Diego back in 2000 and has served as a successful artificial reef ever since. The original marine life survey done by the San Diego Ocean Foundations in 2004 has provided a baseline study to follow up on after a decade.

Somehow I forgot that I ever made this movie, or I never uploaded it to You Tube--in any event, here it is: for hard-core wreck divers, featuring our late, great friend 'NOAA Jim' on scooter back in 2010.

Good memories!

He was a master of camouflage too....see how he stays the same color as the sand behind him the whole time.
