On April 11th–13th, I was at the Florida Chapter of the Wildlife Society conference to present my research on Wood Storks. My talk won the award for the best student presentation!
The 2018 Spring Meeting of the Florida Chapter of the Wildlife Society was held on April 11th–13th in Crystal River. Participants included both students and professionals, who presented their research or work focused on Florida wildlife. The meeting is a great opportunity for students to be exposed to peers as well as researchers and managers working outside of academia. I really enjoyed the variety of topics I got to hear about, and being at the interface of the two worlds—universities and agencies. I presented a talk on landscape-scale movements of Wood Storks and their implications for Everglades restoration. I was thrilled to be awarded the prize for the best student presentation!
