‘ONLINE’ Beaty@Home Live: Researchers Revealed

A bull killer whale surfaces for air in the Johnstone Strait.

Researchers Revealed  provides a window into current biodiversity research projects, and introduces the people behind them. Following scientists from the Biodiversity Research Centre at UBC, we travel from oceans to deserts and far-off jungles, uncovering the answers to some of our most pressing questions about life on Earth. This exhibit began in 2013, and has gone through many changes to get to today’s incredible online exhibition.

During today’s Beaty@Home, join Nicole Balsdon, Education & Outreach Coordinator; Amy Liu, MSc Student in Zoology; alongside members of the Exhibits & Design team, including Derek Tan, Interim Exhibits Manager; Mandy Huynh; Evan Craig; and Jamie Clarke. Explore the history of Researchers Revealed, chat with researchers and museum staff, and view the newest additions to the online exhibition. Read about Jamie’s experience working on this project in our newest blog post.
