Today was another lab meeting day where we focused on discussing Chapter 5 of Banana Leaves. I was introduced to Olivia and Ariana, who are working with geoducks and corals. Though I am waiting to access the book, there is a recap of environmental justice – specifically not including Indigenous ways, rather based on Western ways. We also spoke on anti-blackness, gender rights when addressing the questions at the end of the chapter. Moving from the book, we recapped the work we were all doing and I introduced the work I will working on. Thankfully I received from advise on how I should address creating an experimental design to see results.
