(By Allison Eaton) This radio documentary is meant to capture the joy, fear, chaos and wonder that visitors of the Bonne Bay Marine Station experience when they encounter the fascinating creatures found in our touch tank. The touch tank contains a variety of marine organisms that are found locally in Bonne Bay. Each visitor has a completely different tactile experience when handling creatures such as a crab, starfish or moon snail. We hope that you'll be able to share in some of the feelings experienced by our visitors as you listen to all the interesting tidbits of information shared by your host, Fiona Cuthbert. Drop by the touch tank next time you're in Norris Point and discover your own reaction to these prickly, pinchy and sometimes slimy creatures!

A fjord on the west coast of Newfoundland, Bonne Bay finds itself surrounded by the lands of Gros Morne National Park - a Unesco World Heritage Site. Drawing on years of research conducted at The Bonne Bay Marine Station, author Joe Wroblewski offers a comprehensive guide to this important marine ecosystem. With vivid photos, helpful illustrations, and clear descriptions to assist in the identification and understanding of each species, Marine Wildlife of Bonne Bay is both a practical guide and a prescient call for environmental stewardship to protect this most valuable habitat and its resources.
Joseph Wroblewski is a professor in the Department of Ocean Sciences at Memorial University in St. John's and a researcher at the Bonne Bay Marine Station on the island's west coast.
