Lichens are a symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae. The fungus provides shelter and protection while the algae provides food. The lack of roots means they absorb nutrients through the air/water, so they only grow in areas with good air quality!

Mr. Fungus and Mrs. Algae got married the other day. Mr. Fungi built a big, beautiful house for the two of them and Mrs. Algae cooks them dinner every night. They're really "lichen" it. that Klondike Gold Rush has some of the highest lichen diversity in North America?

Sea lions are most often seen in larger groups and communicate with loud barks. Their back flippers are capable of rotating forward, allowing them to "walk" when they're on land! They also have visible ear flaps.

Seals have fixed back flippers and scoot across dry land on their bellies, and no visible ear flaps. They are often solitary and quiet, communicating mostly in soft grunts. 📷courtesy of Andrew Beierly
