About the event
"In biology one of the fundamental units of study are species. But what really is a species? How do we study them? Why do we care about them? Join Caleb Hinojos as he takes a dive into the splendid species that exist and gives some insights into the nuance which surrounds them.
Caleb Hinojos was born and raised in the DFW metroplex. His love of animals began at the age of 3 with reptiles. Influenced by the great Steve Irwin and Sir David Attenborough, he knew that he wanted to pursue this passion. After completing an enlistment in the Marine Corps, he returned to the area and began his collegiate education. He received his BS and MS from the University of Texas at Arlington with a focus on genetic and genomic evolution.
Through the years, Caleb has worked a variety of scientific jobs both in the field and in the lab which has given him a unique perspective regarding the natural world. These experiences led him to become a Master Naturalist with the intent of educating people about modern and classical biology and how these two disciplines intersect with conservationism.
