Paul murdock jr.

Paul began volunteering for the Calvert Marine Museum (CMM) in the summer of 2001 and spotted several articulated specimens in the Cliffs. His discovery enabled him to join the museum for many days of field work as they quarried the discoveries. Since then he has spotted and recovered many specimens along the Cliffs and donated them to museums such as the CMM, VMNH and the Smithsonian. The total count is upwards of 2000. Of these, several are under research as possible new species or as first occurrences from the Calvert Cliffs.



Aikta has always been a passionate traveler. She has explored quite a bit of the United States, as well as Mexico, Bahamas, Bermuda, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Holland, Ireland, England, and various parts of India, including spending five years living in the remote foothills of the Himalayas, outside of India’s oldest tiger reserve, the Jim Corbett Park.
