You are invited to an exciting evening of deadly discoveries and stories from behind the microscope!
Australia’s National Marine Stinger Advisor and former Cabrillo Marine Aquarium (CMA) jellyfish research volunteer, Dr. Lisa-ann Gershwin, is back at CMA to discuss the secret world of Australia’s Jellyfish. Join us on Tuesday, July 10 at 7pm for this special free lecture.
