In 1982, only 23 condors remained. Now there are over 450. #condor #conservation #pacificnorthwest#thewildlifesociety #condorconservationproject #oregon
TWS 2018 was pretty cool I guess. #thewildlifesociety

I've heard a lot of great talks, met a lot of new people, caught up with old friends, and it's only the second day!

I was able to get my “conservation batteries” recharged this week while attending the North Dakota Chapter of the Wildlife Society meeting. Even in a time where there is so much to be discouraged about - grassland conversion, climatic changes, larger and more simplified agricultural systems, and increased disconnect between people and the natural world to name a few - but a week surrounded by people who care so much, and remain so determined to not only tackle but defeat these issues is truly inspiring. And on top of that to begin to see a rise in the number of strong, independent, women scientists is icing on the cake.

But I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to say thank you to a guy who has done so much, not only this week, but consistently to allow me to pursue this career, support me in my endeavors, and tolerate all of the rants, late nights, and passion that accompanies it. Thanks for everything @scottmclausen and GO NATURE!

“Nonnative frogs boost nonnative birds in Hawaii”—The Wildlife Society News
A recent study suggests that the invasive, non-native coqui frogs on Big Island are increasing the non-native bird population.  Could the continued presence of coqui frogs contribute to increased threats that the non-native birds have on our native bird populations?

Think I am gonna get into birding

Species in order of appearance:
Long-eared owl
Barred Owl
Red-shouldered Hawk
Eastern Bluebird (male)
Eastern Bluebird (female) and American Robin
Last but not least, Northern Saw-Whet Owl!
I am in training to be a project coordinator for the Northern Saw-whet owl banding project here at Purdue. So expect more owl pics in the near future 🦉 (we take volunteers out with us so if you are nearby and interested....)

It’s internship season! For those in NRC or a related field, now is the time to look for summer internships. Internships are a great way to get involved and gain experience in your field. Available opportunities often will come through your Umass email at this time, and the ECO department’s webpage has some great resources (http://eco.umass.edu/for-current-students/career-links/)
Unsure how to apply or build a resume? Talk to your advisor, check out career services on campus (located in Goodell Hall) or reach out to one of our officers. Snag an internship? Feel free to post about it on our Facebook page to show wildlifers what’s out there. Good luck! 🐾

Hey everyone, I just wanted to spread the word that my old college campus is selling these shirts and hoodies featuring this eastern massasauga rattlesnake (Sistrurus catenatus) to benefit the PSU Dubois student chapter of the wildlife society. Your purchase benefits an awesome group of students and will be greatly appreciated. You can purchase the clothing at this site -> https://stores.inksoft.com/wildlife2017/shop/home (Side note, the pictures are of clothing I have ordered so please excuse the dog hair)

Earlier this semester I wrote a personal email to world-renowned evolutionary ecologist Dr. Eric Pianka, and to my great surprise he immediately wrote me back. At a sad, directionless time in my life, I saw Pianka’s PBS NOVA Lizard Kings documentary and it played a huge role in galvanizing me to move back to Texas and study Wildlife Biology. In replying to my email, he said he’d love to come talk to my little society (The Wildlife Society at Texas State University). So, this Friday, I get to meet one of my greatest inspirations and I still really just can’t believe he even wrote me back in the first place!! #evolution #biology #wild #wildlife #science #research #college #school #inspiration #inspire #happy #grateful #excited #smtx #texas #state #txst #nature #outdoors #pbs #nova #lizard #king #omg #tws #wildlifesociety #thewildlifesociety

On the Remembrance Day long weekend, members of the student chapter had the opportunity to volunteer at the Northern Lights Wildlife Society. They helped to rebuild an enclosure for a young lynx, and got to interact with a variety of wild animals you normally couldn't get that close to. 
Keep in mind that all of the profits from our calendar sales go back to this group to help keep them doing what they do best.

Vernal pool plants, soils, and critters already make me smile! What makes me smile even more is learning from an entire collaboration of scientists, biologists and regulatory specialists (both public and private sector) about the successes and setbacks of restoration, mitigation, regulatory permitting, and monitoring of vernal pool projects. The more we share, the more we can learn how best to adapt projects to better protect and enhance our local wetlands and habitats🤗

How to be an inconsiderate wildlife photographer - Lesson 1: do as these folks are doing and create a "WALL OF HUMAN" in a well trodden wildlife road. I encountered this scene this past Friday at #pocosinlakes wildlife refuge and while, yes, it was extremely aggravating on a photographic level to have inconsiderate photographers in the area, it was more deeply concerning to witness the impact on the wildlife. Sometimes one must bear witness in order to create something with a higher purpose. In bearing witness to this high level of stupidity, I was able to take a series of photos that exemplify how not to behave when photographing wildlife, including a very close encounter where these folks acted in egregiously wrong ways. It's going to make for a great article for the state chapter of the wildlife society newsletter that I co-edit. If anyone is interested in a copy of that article, please DM me your email and write "NCTWS article," and when it comes out, I'll email you a copy (FYI it could be a while). #higherpurpose #thewildlifesociety

Today. Was. Awesome. #thewildlifesociety
This is a bit of an introspective post, so read on if you care.... Whenever I travel, I'm always drawn to nature, even when I'm in an urban landscape. But it was always an integral part of my childhood, and led to the profession I'm in today. One of the lasting thoughts I have from the Wildlife Society conference I attended in Albuquerque is the issue of diversity in the wildlife sciences (and really ecology in general) - of both gender and culture. As a caucasian male in the field, I'm one of many, and that's made me question what kind of role I should have moving forward in my career - I'm not one of the visible minorities that are under-represented in my field. I don't think I have an answer yet. But I like the word facilitate. Facilitate connections between young people and mentors who look like them. And also acceptance. Be accepting and welcoming of those who show an interest in the natural world, regardless of their background. Because exclusion- whether intentional or not - only serves to impede progress in our conservation and management goals.

An exciting time here at @devcon_ecology! The Wildlife Society recently covered a publication by my colleagues on the relationship between pesticide and parasite tolerance in wood frogs. Populations vary in their tolerance to all sorts of stressors, and depending on the selective pressures their environment places upon them, they may trade off tolerance to one stressor in favor of defending against another. This is one of the central themes of my dissertation. Best of all, they featured one of my photos in the article! Congrats to my labmate @vwuerthner and colleagues @doctorjonesie and @brian_mattes on the publication!

The gators are captive animals from FWC and are only handled by trained individuals. They are monitored and switched out to keep stress levels low throughout the event. The tape is required by law when they are in public and it is taken off as soon as they are out of public. I will be returning them to FWC on Monday. 
________________________________________________

All of these photos were taken by me besides the one I am in (taken by Brian Barker with my camera) and the tarantula and pill bugs (taken by another wildlifer with my camera,) so please ask if you want to use them.

A travel experience is 100% informed by your companions. Thank you infinitely to the crew of The Red Baron for making this trip side-splitting, collectively calming hysteria, and being an all around badass road crew. 💞 #TheWildlifeSociety #TWS #redbaron @lamillerrrr @abutler1397 @haley_keff

That, my friends, is a white tailed deer made from twist ties.

Western Meadowlark at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. I have seen thousands of meadowlarks but never noticed how beautiful their brown feathers are! @thewildlifesociety #valledeoronationalwildliferefuge @valledeoronwr #thewildlifesociety

South Valley Academy students presented in their work at Valle de Oro to The Wildlife Society. It was a beautiful fall day on the refuge and they caught some butterflies too!
