Bonne Bay Drift

Photograph by David Doubilet, National Geographic

A lion’s mane jellyfish drifts in Bonne Bay in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The species can grow to eight feet across.

Years of overfishing, warming waters, and possible offshore drilling cause concern for the health of the gulf's ecosystem.

See more pictures from the May 2014 feature story “The Generous Gulf.”
