It’s been hard to wait a whole year, I know! Taxonomist Appreciation Day is coming up, on 19 March!
I imagine museums, science departments, and libraries will have costume shows, trivia, art competitions, and potluck taxonomic salad festivals. Meanwhile, the talented scientific artists of BuzzHootRoar are running their annual taxonomy pun contest!
Here are their instructions:
2. Celebrity judges will select five favorites.
3. Winners will receive: their puns illustrated on Buzz Hoot Roar’s blog, a set of printed greeting cards to share with the taxonomists in their lives, and a BHR super-soft T-shirt.
Were you unaware of Taxonomist Appreciation Day? Well, now you know. Thank goodness the folks who are building and repairing the foundation of our work are getting the attention and respect they deserve!
