The first International Polychaete Day (1 July 2015) inaugurated in memory of Kristian Fauchald who passed away 5 April 2015.  What better way to remember and celebrate a great polychaetologist, mentor and friend than by sharing with the world the amazing animals he reveled in for 59 years?!  Below is an update of currently known activities and posts planned for the day. Please let us know if there are others.
