Ask the Researcher
We're here to help. Our area of expertise is the natural history of
southern California and the Baja California peninsula. If we don't
know the answer to your question, we'll try to find it or guide you
to the appropriate resource.
We do ask a few things of you:
- Please check the questions our curators are asked most often. Chances
are you'll find your answer in our FAQs.
- Don't ask us to do your homework! We're happy to help with specific
questions, but let us know what you've already done to try to find
- Let us know generally where you live, and, if you're a student,
what grade level you are in. It helps us answer your questions.
- Be very careful when typing your email address. We have no way
of replying to you if it isn't correct.
