picked up soon. we are seeing more slowing from 242 down to the walnut creek interchange. that's because the build is on already for that portion of the east bay. heading to the bay bridge is not a problem. we go over and show you waze and the alternate they have mapped for you. off the venetian bridge, on highway 24. if you job over and take taylor down through pleasant hill, that's a good drive. wazer gets you past the slow section. the emeryville camera is the one off the east shore and looking at the bridge itself. the bay bridge looks good to focus on the beautiful sparkling lights. the traffic is good as well, into and out of the city. >> i'm glad you see the good in everything. that's nice. lawmakers encouraging so-called d.r.e.a.m.ers to

other sea life are washing up dead in the san francisco bay. it's not just something in the water. >> we are along the bay with that story. >> reporter: guys, good morning. the san francisco bay is home to a complex ecosystem. when one species suffers, others can, too. it stretched 1600 square miles so wildlife is interconnected. that's concerning since 2000 sharks washed up dead in the bay just over five months. marine biologist is california's one-man science trying to figure out why. the research points to a parasite that sneaks in through a shark's nose and slowly eats away at the brain. studying sharks isn't officially his job. he's been researching in his spare time and does it from home. to find out why, california's
department of fish and wildlife, we spoke to dave tiffany. >> we have a lot of constraints on how the programs are funded. >> reporter: right now, california is relying on a guy checking shark tissue sample in his dining room. doesn't that seem strange to you? >> i have no knowledge of how his day-to-day operations work. i can't answer that. >> you are not aware he is doing any of the science in his living room. >> i didn't know that. >> reporter: in his kitchen? his backyard? >> no. >> reporter: not at all. we discovered the department of fish and wildlife isn't dedicating any money toward researching the shark deaths. the legislature or governor could change that. they say they are prioritizing research elsewhere, to other higher risk wildlife. >> thank you very much. if you have a tip, give us a
