I LOVE this unique museum, research and educational institution. This is the place that recently discovered the sharks are warm blooded which led to the finding that many fish (including tuna) are also warm blooded. And discovered 50 new major species in the Philippines last year.
This is also the place where you can see penguins and kids can enjoy the white alligator.
And it's the place where school kids from San Francisco get great scientific education.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the positive impact made on the Farallones Sanctuary through the Academy's efforts to bring HD cam's to help observation
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Tie the research to the exhibits more tightly so people understand the latest discoveries. Add a Vice President of Customer Experience to integrate the experiences.
