As part of a pilot project, funded by Penn Arts and Science's Making a Difference in Diverse Communities program, Professor and Chair of Philosophy Michael Weisberg’s research group has placed three floating platforms in the bay adjacent to this Galápagos town. The sea lions seem to be enjoying their new home.
