Health Editor’s Note: Back in 1905 researchers from the California Academy of Sciences surveyed the Galapagos Islands for 17 months. The fields of geology, paleontology, entomology, botany, ornithology, herpetology, and malacology were represented. Specimens were gathered. This Academy has started an endeavor to digitize some of these 78,000 specimens. The 3-D images will give virtual access to researchers and the public and will be placed online beginning in 2021. Awesome!….Carol
