Hello-
I am currently an undergrad at Northeastern University and am studying Environmental Science [marine concentration]. I am hoping to work on coral reef conservation but want to do my specific grad work working with nautilus. I am wondering if anyone knows of any good schools that have professors working with these creatures or if anyone knows of any research institutes working with them?

Thanks you!:nautilus:

:welcome: and hello! Try and PM Robyn on this one, she will probably be quite able to send you in the right direction.

If you're still interested you can look up Jennifer Basil at CUNY (City University of New York) Brooklyn. She does behavioral conditioning of Nautilus.

As OB mentions Dr. Robyn should be a great source to help you get started but I know it can be a little intimidating to navigate the site initially so I am providing a link to contact information to our NautiGirl (sorry Robyn, I've been wanting to use that term for awhile and could not pass up the opportunitiy :sagrin:)
