Octavio Aburto - Mares Mexicanos/Mexican Seas

Venue: CU Museum of Natural History [BioLounge]
Mexican Seas is an exhibit of 10 features photographs by oceanographer Ocravio Aburto. The imagery highlights the beauty of Mexico's diverse coastal and marine ecosystems. From shallow mangrove and kelp forests, to deep black coral gardens and seamounts, these ecosystems constitute the home of thousands of species that only can be seen in Mexican oceans. Many ancestral cultures and coastal towns have had strong links with marine resources. Their history, survivorship, and expansion have been related with the exploration of new coastal and marine habitats, and with the exploitation of a great variety of species.
