[Rescheduled from 6/14]

Travel back in time to the prehistoric seas of Los Angeles with Museum Educator Justin Ramos and the Museum's Assistant Curator of Invertebrate Paleontology, Dr. Austin Hendy. Dr. Hendy will dive deep into the history of our ancient oceans and introduce the weird and wonderful ancestors of your favorite SpongeBob characters. Although most of the fantastical organisms that populated our ancient oceans lived millions of years ago, these extinct ocean animals continue to impact our lives today!

Austin Hendy, Assistant curator of invertebrate paleontology

Austin Hendy is the Assistant Curator of Invertebrate Paleontology at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. He’s toured the Seven Seas, but Dr. Hendy is especially interested in the fossilized ocean critters of tropical South America. He spends most of his time exploring the watery world of millions of years ago through fossils of incredibly tiny–but occasionally surprisingly big–marine animals without backbones.
