Marine Lab exibits

HSU JUST UNWRAPPED a major renovation of the Telonicher Marine Lab's wet lab and public display area. The work was funded by alumni, grants and private donations. Located on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Trinidad, Calif., the marine lab was established in 1965.

  • "What we've been able to do is literally tear down the walls and start with a blank slate," equipment technician David Hoskins said. "It's really exciting for us, for our students and for the thousands of visitors we get each year."
  • The public display area now includes a 12-foot by 5-foot tank for viewing local marine organisms, smaller tanks highlighting local marine environments and LCD screens feature videos and photographs by Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Rick Rosenthal ('67, Zoology).
  • Upgrades to the wet lab include new water tank stands, a research area for visiting scientists and an enhanced electrical system.
  • The lab has a circulating seawater system, lecture rooms and labs for oceanographic research.
