snail, slug, and semislug enthusiast

My name is Gia and I graduated from UC San Diego with a B.S. in Microbiology, however, my real passion lies with invertebrates, especially land snails. One of my goals is to help show the general public how incredible land snails are. To this end, I'm in the process of creating a land snail sticker book that will hopefully appeal to people of all ages without requiring them to have any prior scientific knowledge whatsoever. I'm currently drafting a species list and creating the sticker art and I hope to have this done within the next six months or so. I hope that by showing people why they should love land snails, more attention can be brought to snail conservation and species declines can be slowed.

I also love arachnids. My favorite arachnids are solifuges, scorpions, and pseudoscorpions but I honestly love them all. The lesser known and underappreciated inverts are the most interesting to me.
