The Central Coast STEM Collaborative (CCSTEM), will continue its ongoing informal, educational lecture series “Science After Dark” at 6:30pm, March 21st, at Luis Wine Bar in San Luis Obispo. The series is scheduled for the third Tuesday of every month through May 2017.
Elephant seals were considered extinct at the end of the 19th century, having been hunted out. Eventually, a small colony was discovered on an island off the coast of Mexico. All northern elephant seals are considered to be descendants of that small colony. They are popular for scientific study because they are hard to watch, spending eight to ten months a year basically under water, and much is still to be learned.
Science After Dark is fortunate to have two highly qualified speakers for this presentation: David L. Bauer and Diana Blake Barnhart. David L. Bauer is a retired chemist/environmental scientist, docent and President of Friends of the Elephant Seal. Diana Blake Barnhart, retired teacher, and docent with Friends of the Elephant Seal, received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Cal Poly in Biological Sciences.
