USPS honors marine biologist Dr. Eugenie Clark

Today would have been the 100th birthday of Dr. Eugenie Clark. She was a pioneering marine biologist who demonstrated that lemon sharks could be trained to do complex tasks, disproved the notion that some shark species must keep swimming in order to survive, and debunked myths about sharks as vicious, fearsome creatures.

We are proud to have worked with the talented artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya to create a stamp honoring this great American scientist!
