I first met Jonathan White on the beach at Mary's Point in 2010. He was here interviewing Mary Majka as part of his research into the world's most dramatic tides. I watched as he and David Christie waded out into the mud flats, looking for the mud shrimp (corophium volulator) that provide a critical food source for the masses of shorebirds that come here each summer. He came back several times after that for more research, and we've kept in touch.
Now, after 20 years of traveling and searching for answers, Jon is returning to the Maritimes to promote his book, TIDES: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, and speak to audiences about his experiences as a 'Tide Chaser'.
Take my word for it...this has been a fascinating journey that you don't want to miss.
“In my research I went to those places that have dramatic tides processes at work because these are the places where the experts converge,” says White.
He'll be sharing his remarkable experiences with audiences in the Moncton area on July 11th.
