Beltran Lab Tacoma

The Beltran Lab has a dedicated truck (Green 2022 Tacoma-TRD Sport, #7682) for transportation between UCSC and Año Nuevo Reserve. Funding was provided by the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation as part of Dr. Beltran’s Beckman Young Investigator award. The primary goal of the truck is to provide hands-on animal handling experience to undergraduate and graduate students participating in the elephant seal program at Año Nuevo Reserve.  Use of this truck incurs a $1/mile cost that will be charged to each Principal Investigator’s FOAPAL annually (calculated from the Google Calendar use data). This recharge rate covers charging, wear & tear, and fleet services costs.
