Check out this short tour of the Cal Academy’s field laboratory in Puerto Galera, Philippines, guided by the Academy’s curator of invertebrate zoology Dr. Rich Mooi.
This was shot fairly late in the evening to avoid the crush of scientists crowding the lab earlier in the afternoon. So there were not as many beautiful specimens on display unfortunately. But I think it still gets across the idea of how the lab is laid out and what our scientists are working on.
Thanks to Dr. Mooi for being a good sport and guiding us on a tour of the lab! Here’s Rich with a particularly cool sea urchin he’s studying.
