Expedition to Oz



Paul Hearty (foreground) and Michael O’Leary sort, label and pack samples for shipping back to the U.S.

After 10 days and 2,000 miles of driving, the team arrives in Perth, the only major city on Australia’s west coast. They rest a few days while sorting, labeling and packing up their most pristine samples for shipment to Boston. After stocking up on supplies, they depart on the second leg of their trip. They return to Perth later before flying home.
