Live from the Lab: Amphipods, the tiny vultures of the sea

Instagram Live


Instagram Live

Continuing on with their “pod-series,” Marine Lab Research Assistants, Diana and Joycelyn will take you on a mini deep dive on amphipods. See what they look like under the scope and learn about their important scavenging role in the sea, akin to vultures on land. What would we do without scavengers? It would be quite a stinky mess.

Join us on our Instagram page for this Live program. A recording of the program will also be available on this page and our YouTube channel.
