Expedition Isla del Coco: Reef Fish Behavior | In Person

Course Description:

Isla del Coco, 300 miles offshore of Costa Rica, is the fictional home of Jurassic Park, and the literal home of untold millions in buried pirate gold. But it is also (along with the northwest Galapagos Islands) home to the largest biomass of sharks in the world. Join Dr. James Lindholm as he recounts his recent voyage to the island to study the foraging behavior of reef fishes amidst the many bays and pinnacles surrounding the island and hear how the island will likely find its way into fiction yet again in Lindholm's “Chris Black Adventures.”
