We made the front page of two papers in one week! The articles discussed research conducted as part of a scorpion microbiome project with Dr. Barbara Murdoch, funded by the NASA CT Space Consortium.
Drs. Michael Webber and Matthew Graham were interviewed and photographed by the Las Vegas Review Journal for an article on our new scorpion species from Death Valley National Park.
The next day Shane Bevell of the UNLV News Center contributed his own version of the story.
Which made the UNLV homepage!
March & April 2012
Our new species from Death valley made the international spotlight and was covered by various media outlet around the world.
A photograph of Aiden Valverde and Dr. Graham at a BioBlitz in San Diego was published in the Pahrump Valley Times to advertise for an outreach event at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. The event “Let’s Explore After Dark” was organized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services. Drs. Michael Webber and Matthew Graham were guest scientists that led a group of about 80 children and adults on a group scorpion hunt.
Dr. Graham was interviewed and featured collecting scorpions on camera for “America’s Wild Spaces: Death Valley”, a program about Death Valley National Park produced by National Geographic.
