Soup and Science

Liana Vitali, Jug Bay Sanctuary Naturalist/Education Coordinator and Education/Outreach Coordinator at the Vermilion Sea Institute, Baja California, Mexico.   B.S. Biology & Ecology minor, The Pennsylvania State Univeristy; M.A. Zoology, Miami University of Ohio

Join us Sunday afternoon for the last of our 2017 Soup and Science series.  From noon to 1pm, enjoy soup, fresh bread and dessert and catch up with friends and colleagues.

At 1pm,  Liana Vitali will discuss her summer research at the Vermilion Sea Institute in Baja California, Mexico using spot pattern-recognition software developed for space exploration.  The software is being used to identify whale shark individuals in the Sea of Cortez and around the world. She will also discuss how citizen science is powering this research along with ways to become a citizen scientist at Jug Bay.

Even though we still have over a week of winter remaining, this is the first day of Daylight Savings Time, so make sure you're adjusted to the right time
