Lunchtime Science Seminar: "River Otters: Back on the Bay Area Map!"

Join us as Megan Isadore discusses what's known, what needs to be discovered, and just how the River Otter Ecology Project manages to research elusive, secretive mammals who slide into the water and disappear when approached. She will show slides and videos from the River Otter Ecology Project's ottercams, and discuss the project and the role that citizen science plays in this otterly exciting work!
