Downlisting an endangered species take time, and more than a little ingenuity. For Whooping Cranes, we have quite a few interesting tools in the box; swapped eggs, insect management, nest modifications... oh my! Join us for a talk about what innovative research is being undertaken to help bolster the reintroduced Eastern Migratory Population of Whooping Cranes in an effort to get us closer to the downlisting goal.
Anne's presentation is the perfect companion to the presentation by Carter Crouch. Please consider signing up for both!
Anne grew up in Madison, leaving to attend college in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She received a B.A. in Psychology (1991) and returned to get a B.S. in Biology (1994). After working various jobs while taking graduate level Geographic Information Systems courses at the University of South Carolina, Anne was accepted to the graduate program in Biology at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. After finishing coursework in Duluth in 2000, Anne accepted an internship at ICF, while also finishing her thesis.
After completion of her M.S., Anne accepted a full-time position at ICF as a research associate in the Field Ecology Department (now the North America Program), working on an ongoing long-term study of sandhill cranes. She added the Whooping Crane work in 2009, joining the Whooping Crane Reintroduction Project to study the ecology of the newly reintroduced population in Wisconsin.
