Breakthrough in octopus communication

 Education researchers at Oregon Sea Grant’s Free-Choice Learning Lab, housed at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC), have discovered a way to translate octopus gestures to human speech. This project was unveiled on April 1, 2012.

About Chris Jury

I grew up in Michigan, hunting turtles, frogs, and other wonderful, creepy things. In high school I became particularly interested in coral reefs and set up my first reef tank in 2001--a modest 10 gal tank. I soon upgraded that tank and, as they say, the rest is history. I'm currently a Ph.D. candidate in biological oceanography at the University of Hawaii at Manoa where I investigate coral calcification and coral responses to global change.
