Question - 46

Identify the shaded region in the map and connect with the second visual. Be warned that the connect is rather facetious.

Answer: The map shows the pacific ring of fire - an area of active volcanic activity. The rather lame finding nemo connect that I had in mind is that there is a "ring of fire" in the aquarium atop Mt. Wannahockaloogie. However, Swapnaa offers a much better connect namely the NeMO project that is designed to explore biodiversity in the ring of fire. Iam and Swapnaa got it. Well done and apologies if the finding nemo bit misled you.

Ring of fire
Nemo first: Mount Wanahakalugi
The other Ring of Fire: Pacific ocean tectonic boundary where volcanic and earthquake activities abound

Volcanic activities in the Pacific Ring of Fire have connections with marine biology. The NeMO project sends expeditions to explore such connections. Incidentally, our little Nemo is also from one such bio-community, the great barrier reef.

ok.. the map shows the distribution of the leatherback turtles. The picture in the right shows the characters of finding nemo. Nemo's father hitches a ride on a turtle to find his son
