In 2019, a team of fisheries biologists from VIMS traveled to Nepal to study the country's freshwater fishes. Their goal was to understand how national parks - primarily designed to protect large land animals - may also protect fish habitats and diversity. Along the way they learned a great deal about the rewards and challenges associated with conducting international research. Join us as Dr. Mary Fabrizio, Dr. Troy Tuckey, and Vaskar Nepal provide a first-hand account of their expedition. From extreme heat to wild rhinoceros encounters, they will detail their expedition and what they hope to discover with the information they gathered.

This is the January installment of the 2020 After Hours Lecture Series. Reservations to this free, public lecture series are required due to limited space. After Hours lectures are designed for an adult audience. Call 804-684-7061 for further information.
