Faculty of Life Sciences Community Open Days

Last 8th and 9th of May, the Preziosi lab held two stands at the Faculty of Life Sciences' Community Open Days: one showcasing some of the ex-situ conservation research carried out in the lab and another featuring the ocean acidification experiments we did at the Manchester Museum's Climate Change Big Saturday in March.

At the ex-situ conservation stand we displayed a selection of the amphibians and invertebrates we have been working on over the years: golden mantellas (Mantella aurantiaca) and hissing cockroaches (Gromphadorhina portentosa) from Madagascar, Frégate Island beetles (Polposipus herculeanus) from the Seychelles, green and black poison dart frogs (Dendrobates auratus) from southern Central America, a range of orchids from around the UK, and – just for fun – a baby giant millipede from East Africa.
