From the Cocos Island off of the coast of Costa Rica to the famed Galapagos, oceanic islands foster a vast array of wondrous cultures, biodiversity, and diverse environments. Their waters are home to fascinating species ranging from sharks to corals, while the islands themselves feature a variety of plant and animal life, much of which is uniquely endemic to specific islands, and others of which have yet to be discovered. This Milstein Science Series program will explore what scientists have learned about island species since Darwin's famous voyage on the Beagle brought him to the Galapagos in 1831, with a focus on current island discovery, adventure, and cutting-edge science.

This program is hosted by Jenny Newell, assistant curator of Pacific Ethnology in the Museum’s Division of Anthropology; speakers include Christopher Filardi of the Museum’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation; Chris Meyer, director of the Moorea Biocode Project at the Smithsonian Institute; and Jarod Miller, naturalist and zoologist, who will lead a live-animal presentation.
