Attention all photographers and nature-lovers!
Become a "Tide Watcher" in Tampa Bay Estuary Program King Tide photo project

King tides occur when the moon and sun align on one side of the Earth and their gravitational forces combine to create extraordinarily high tides. While these tides are completely natural occurrences, they provide us with a sneak-peak of what our landscape will have to contend with in the coming years as the sea level rises.

During the last week of October the Tampa Bay area is anticipating high, or "King," tides of over 2 feet.

Near St. Pete. Pier area:
October 23rd at 12:02pm
October 24th at 1:10 pm
October 25th at 2:12 pm
Be sure to record the exact time and location of your photos. Try to capture areas inundated with water.

Pictures can be:
-emailed to: fltidewatch@yahoo.com
-uploaded to: Tampa Bay Estuary Program Facebook
-or using your own account, directly upload to Flickr: Florida Tide Watch


Increased tides are already being spotted by friends of mine who work for Audubon, it can only get more interesting from here! We have noticed a big influx of shorebird activity, which means the fish are happily exploring their newly risen ecosystems. Cool!
