‘Bioluminescence in Australia’ by Elena Levkovskaya has been featured in Twig Science Reporter

In January 2020 we were lucky ones to witness and have a chance to record an extraordinary appearance of the glowing ocean in Jervis Bay, Australia. The bioluminescence is caused by blooms of large single-cell organisms called dinoflagellates. The particular dinoflagellate glowing in the Australian waters is the Noctiluca scintillans species or bioluminescent algae.

This rare scene of bioluminescence has been revealed by Elena Levkovskaya Photography and featured in Science reporter by Twig Education & Imperial College London.
