When I first heard about Healy Hamilton at a meeting QUEST was having with the California Academy of Sciences, I just knew I was going to like her. I mean, what kind of scientist studies not only the effects of climate change on biodiversity, but also has independent projects with river dolphins, seahorses and octopuses? Talk about Bio…Diversity! (ouch)
So what do you do with a scientist with such diverse interests? Well, we featured her in no less than three QUEST TV stories in our third season. (Incidentally, this record is only matched by another Cal Academy Scientist, Bob Full. I guess they attract a lot of very interesting people over there at the Academy).
