What's New With Lu

Visit to the National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Lab

I wrote a short piece on Defenders of Wildlife’s Medium site detailing my visit to the National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory. It’s one of the many topics that I knew next to nothing about and I’m glad I was able to meet some experts in the field.

I have also been a long time fan of Atlas Obscura and I was happy to see that they’ve done a profile of the lab before.
