PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

LUCK

Luck affects our lives in numerous ways: a car accident, meeting Mr. Right, missing a plane. Does luck also affect the lives of animals? Do some animals get lucky breaks while others never get a break? This project looks at the role of chance in the lives of free-living animals: fiddler crabs in the mangrove forests of Darwin, Northern Territory.
