Cawthron Institute

Lest you think Nelson is a sleepy little resort town of sorts, well, it kind of is, but we are a hub for the forestry and fishery industry, too. Nestled in the quiet residential area near the town center is Cawthron Institute, the hub of New Zealand marine and freshwater biology research. (And other stuff; if interested, do please check their web site.)

A lot of folks who got really high marks in math and science work in a few ugly buildings. I'm allowed to say so, because my Dad was a chemistry professor, and whichever university he worked in which ever country, his was always the ugliest building on campus. Next photo, please.
