As expressed often, one of the best parts of Moss Landing Marine Lab is the variety of field experiences available to students. During this past spring the MLML Gulf of California field course took a two week long trip down to Baja California Sur to collect data. Playa Santispac, in Bahia Concepcion, was base camp and selected because it had mangroves, was central to the islands, and had two picturesque palapas (thatched roof huts) that were straight out of a Mexican cerveza commercial (you can see them in the right rear in the photo below).
