Thumbs Up To Oystercatcher Girl - a.k.a. Victoria artist Anne Hansen - for a winning $4,000 bid that will give her the right to name a new species of lichen discovered by University of B.C. researcher Trevor Goward, with proceeds to the Ancient Forest Alliance. Hansen will name Bryoria kockiana, after Hansen's late husband, Henry Kock, a horticulturist and author. The Oystercatcher Girl name comes from her paintings; see them at oystercatchergirl.blogspot.com.
