Lions, tigers, and bears - oh my! This week's #SFBayScienceSpotlight highlights the @Oakland Zoo. Have you been? Get up close and personal with funny, charming, and wild animals from all over the world, right at home in the Bay. This winter, check out their annual lantern festival, Glowfari, for an illuminating look at the Zoo after dark.

It's Friday, and we're kicking off the weekend with our first ever #SFBayScienceSpotlight! Each week, we'll highlight one of our incredible Bay Area collaborators in the spirit of discovering #ScienceTogether. This week, we're shining the light on @Calacademy of Sciences, where there's so much to explore - from marine animals in the aquarium to dinosaur skeletons in the natural history museum. The academy is even open some evenings! Science enthusiasts of all ages will love it here. If you've been to the museum, which exhibit is your favorite? 🙋‍♀️ ...
