Ashley Pearson at Año Nuevo State Reserve, CA-- Hey, I'm Ashley Pearson! Nice to meet you, TOPP.org! I'm a senior biology major at UCSC, and I'm doing a senior thesis through the Costa lab at Long Marine Lab. As part of my thesis, I have become a member of the TOPP E Seal team! From time to time I will blog about the my project and the animals we work with.
