THE EDUCATIONAL GALA & ANNUAL SPEAKER SERIES
Our first Darwin Day celebration at MOSAC!
The second longest-running Darwin Day celebration in the United States, this annual gathering draws individuals who hold science in high regard and want to sustain the scientific integrity of school curricula and programs. The 2023 celebration features a presentation by our special guest Rachael Bay, Ph.D. Professor, Evolution & Ecology, U.C. Davis.
MEET OUR SPEAKER
Rachael Bay Ph.D. leads a group of researchers at The Bay Lab, which aims to gain insights into how organisms survive in environments and how anthropogenic environmental changes impact individuals, populations, and species. She is particularly interested in coral reefs to see how they respond to the pace of climate change by combining a broad geographical perspective with a deep cross-population and cross-species evolutionary approach.

"...evolution does not have to be a long, slow process, and in some cases, evolutionary changes can happen very quickly. In this talk, we will discuss the evolutionary consequences of climate change and how organisms do (or don’t) adapt to their ever-changing environmental conditions."
