Florida United Malacologists 2022, a Big Success!

After a couple of years of cancellations and postponements, it was fantastic to have Florida United Malacologists (FUM) back at the Museum! We had record attendance for FUM last Saturday, with about 90 participants and 18 presentations!

FUM is a one-day gathering that brings together researchers, collectors, citizen scientists, enthusiasts, and students interested in a broad range of mollusk-related topics.

This year’s meeting included a wide range of topics and a relatively large number of students representing the University of Florida, University of Tampa, and University of South Florida.
