Before Flock of Dodos and Shifting Baselines, Randy Olson was inspiring the next generation of marine scientists with educational videos on topics in our field. My first semester in graduate school, I was dazzled by a particular captivating piece from 1991. Craig McClain referenced this project when he was in town (it’s notorious in marine science circles), so yesterday I encouraged my pal RO to post his earlier work on youtube. Unforgettable footage that will leave you just a little more informed about the wonderful world of barnacles.
