About us

We are a team of scientists from the Department of Earth, Atmospheric
and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) at MIT. Copezilla (Calanus colossus) was born a tiny zooplankton in the Charles River before setting out on a 100 year global odyssey that saw her grow to epic proportions. Her clutch of eggs suggests she’s returned, ready to complete her life cycle - but the only way to get her back home is to fly her into the Charles as part of the Flugtag!
