Welcome to the “OCEAN TREASURES” Memorial Library which contains my personal field research materials encompassing the years 1971 to 2002. The library was originally created in July of 2001 within the Yahoo Groups and in December of 2013, the library was relocated to its new home which now provides the advancement of the most current modern website technology to carry on with its worldwide legacy.

Many of the photos, posters and research materials were solid education tools used in my outreach science program “OCEAN TREASURES”. The program spanned 19-years (1988-2008) of displaying unique assembly/classroom presentations involving a combination of an extensive multi-media array & interactive hands-on items which included various prepared oceanic marine animals that covered the curriculum levels from pre-K to collegiate within the American, Canadian and Australian education systems.

The memorial section pays homage to a trio of gentlemen, each of whom I had the distinct honor of personally meeting during my career. Dr. Michael A. Bigg (“the Father of Killer Whale Research” )Jacques-Yves Cousteau (“the Captain” ) and Stephen R. Irwin (“the Crocodile Hunter” ) each during their lifetime and each in their own extraordinary way, truly enhanced the field of the marine biological sciences as well as my own personal studies.
