Congratulations to Dr. Christina Aiello, who was chosen as one of only three Conway Science Fellows for 2019! Christina and Clint will work to better understand the threats facing a desert bighorn sheep metapopulation in California, and develop ways to facilitate collaboration across federal and state agencies to preserve this iconic species.
At this year’s spring Fisheries and Wildlife celebration, Jennifer Nelson was awarded the Thomas G. Scott Achievement Award for all of her hard work as a graduate student and organizing the Willamette Valley Bird Symposium.
