Thanks to Kelly Robinson and Clare Hansen of HMSC's Plankton Ecology Lab, the Guin Library now hosts a display all about jellyfish. Ever wonder what jellies eat or which creatures eat them?   Want to know what a jellyfish is made of or what role they play in the food chain? Do you wonder about all those by-the-wind-sailors (Velella velella) washed-up on local beaches--and what a jellyfish "bloom" is?

 For more information and to participate in citizen science activities related to jellies, check out the Plankton Portal or submit your jellyfish sightings at Jellywatch!
