Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Expedition Baja with Director of Experience Design Michael Field and VP of Science and Conservation Dr. Michael Wall

The Baja California Peninsula has been a magnet for adventurers and naturalists, including our own researchers who have been exploring and studying the region for more than a century. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Gulf of California on the east, this 775-mile-long peninsula has a warm climate and diverse terrain, ranging from coastal sand dunes and rugged mountain peaks to desert flats to isolated islands. The varied landscape supports an amazing diversity of plant and animal life—towering cardón cacti, islands crowded with breeding birds, and insects and arachnids with special adaptations to cope with life in the dunes. Using specimens from the Museum’s scientific collections alongside immersive imagery and stories about conservation work happening there, Expedition Baja brings to life one of the most incredible regions in the world.
