Large Scale Aquatic Conservation Efforts on Private Lands: Can We Make a Difference?
Dr. Carter G. Kruse will give an overview of TESF and discuss TESF’s large-scale aquatic conservation efforts. Dr. Kruse currently works as the Aquatics Resource Coordinator and Senior Aquatics Biologist for TESF and oversees aquatic and riparian native species conservation and restoration, fisheries management, water rights, and aquatic permitting.
A Private Lands Model for Imperiled Species Conservation and Recovery
Dr. Magnus McCaffery will discuss the synergism that can be achieved between ecological conservation and economic/recreational use of large landscapes with a focus on private lands. Dr. McCaffery works as a Senior Biologist with TESF. He is currently involved in pioneering work to restore the bolson tortoise to New Mexico’s Chihuahuan Desert, and is the lead biologist on TESF’s conservation and range-wide recovery efforts on behalf of the Chiricahua leopard frog in New Mexico.
Dr. Kruse and Dr. McCaffery are available for one-on-one discussions with interested students from 9am-12pm on September 17th in the Career and Professional Development Center, LSRC A135B. Please sign up for the lecture event and office hours at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RSVPforTESF
