This is just a reminder that International Polychaete day is quickly approaching. We have outreach events planned throughout the day at Smithsonian NMNH and a great new polychaete video from MBARI (youTube) and I hope others will do the same and again flood the internet with wonderful images and information to get the public and other researchers enthused about our wonderful favorite animals.
Please use the shortened hashtag #PolychaeteDay this year and have fun!
If you are doing something, please let me (osbornk from si.edu<mailto:osbornk from si.edu>) and Katie Mortimer-Jones (Katie.Mortimer-Jones from museumwales.ac.uk<mailto:Katie.Mortimer-Jones from museumwales.ac.uk>) know so we can promote it and include it in the storify track for the day. Thank you Katie for putting that together amidst all the meeting preparations you are already doing.
