Animals don’t make New Year’s resolutions. Instead, they have evolved specific strategies to ensure their survival year-round. Because it’s the New Year, and because I love a good pun, let’s call these survival strategies re-ZOO-lutions.
2022 was the year of the northern migration of the species Portus biologicus (Port Biologist). Two variations of this species, Jenn and Kristin, have been found at the Port of Tacoma. Jenn can be identified by her red plumage while Kristin has brown plumage with a brightly colored cap that appears in the winter.
The Port has given three creek systems an extreme makeover and the fish are pretty stoked about their new digs.
In her latest post, our inimitable Port Biologist turns realtor and gives us an overview of some prime beaver digs in the Port’s Upper Clear Creek Mitigation Site.
