Dance of the striped mullet- Photos taken 05-19-14 Striped mullet leaping out of the water at Malibu Lagoon are captured during a 30 minute time span. Striped Mullet can often be seen jumping in a dance to avoid predators as they are a common prey for other fish and birds. We hope you enjoy the Dance of the striped mullet.

Oscar the Osprey – Photos taken 4/4/14 Oscar is the Malibu Lagoon’s resident Osprey. In this series of images you’ll see Oscar hunt for prey around the perimeter of the lagoon and swoop down on a fish (we think it’s a Mullet but that is not confirmed). Oscar is at the top of the food chain in the heart of Malibu’s eco-system. (Click on the image to the left to see the slideshow.

Native plants are thriving, lush and green – Photos taken 2/20/14 Over 70,000 native plants were planted and are maturing due to careful maintenence. A temporary irrigation system keeps them fed with water while their roots take hold. It is expected that the plants will take another year to fully mature and the roots to strongly take hold. In the mean time, water rationing has been imposed due to the drought conditions California is currently experiencing. (Click on the image to the left to see the slideshow.
