The Scientist Spotlight program connects with marine science professionals all over the world. Lauren Rust, Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network's founder and director interviews these different professionals and connect. This program stemmed out of a time when we were isolated in our homes during the Covid-19 Pandemic. These interviews provide the opportunity to continue learning and staying connected with science from the safety of your home!
Tune in each Wednesday on LMMN's Facebook page to watch short clips taken from these interviews.
