Spring 2022 Awards Barbecue

On Tuesday May 24th, the Department of Animal Science held their annual Spring Awards BBQ. This is the first BBQ we’ve been able to have in two years and it was great to see so many in attendance to celebrate the success of our undergraduate and graduates students that received awards over the last year. We also welcomed our generous donors and their families to this event that wouldn’t be possible without their fantastic support of our students. A great time was had by all!

Anne Todgham on how how Antarctic fish cope with climate stress

Some Antarctic fish living in the planet’s coldest waters are able to cope with the stress of rising carbon dioxide levels in the ocean. They can even tolerate slightly warmer waters.
