Japan Coral Reef Society Conference in Shizuoka

YM, YI, TF, and JDR went to the 11th JCRS conference, held at Granship Convention Center in Shizuoka. All four of us gave poster presentations, and it went very well.

For the three students it was their first time to give a presentation at a conference, and the experience should serve them well in the future.

Things we learned at JCRS:
1. Many people study coral; few work on minor taxa.
2. Trains can be exciting when you have only 1 minute to transfer.
3. Networking is a key skill!

Check out the pix - it was fun!
