Researchers from the University of Hawaii (Brian Bowen), James Cook University (Howard Choat), King Abdullah University (Michael Berumen) and CAS (Luiz Rocha) are departing tonight from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Djibouti. We spent the last day working out logistics with the support from Mike’s lab and students at the amazing campus of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.
Ichthyology curator Luiz Rocha will be taking off this weekend for a collecting trip in Saudi Arabia and Djibouti. This trip is partly funded by National Geographic, and the team of collaborators include researchers from King Abdullah University (Saudi Arabia), James Cook University (Australia) and the University of Hawaii. Updates will be posted often, so keep checking our blog!
