Most people who have visited the California Academy of Sciences have only seen a small sliver of what we do. The Academy houses millions of specimens, hidden behind closed doors. How did these collections begin, and why they are so important? Moe Flannery talks about the importance of specimen preservation at the Academy. This video was produced by youth participating in the 2014 Science in Action Summer Intensive. A project of the California Academy of Sciences’ Digital Learning Program.
