FWCB Professors Honored with Service Award

This year's 2016 Celebrate! Colorado State Awards honored two FWCB Professors, Dr. Kate Huyvaert and Dr. Paul Doherty, with the Office of International Programs Distinguished Service Award. This award recognizes faculty or staff who have made a significant contribution on campus to internationalization efforts of the university. Both Dr. Doherty and Dr. Huyvaert were given this award in honor of their extensive commitment to international education. Recently, they launched a semester program at CSU's Todos Santos Center in Mexico, after already running two winter break programs there. Dr. Doherty and Dr. Huyvaert's commitment to international education is also demonstrated in their other achievements, such as mentoring a Vietnamese Ph.D. student in in widlife ecology, and leading wildlife population sampling method workshops in countries ranging from Ecuador to Cambodia. Congratulations to Dr. Huyvaert and Dr. Doherty on this award!

FWCB Grad Student Tracks Cinnnamon Teal in Southern Colorado

FWCB grad student Casey Setash is studying cinnamon teal in Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge in a research project undertaking studying population dynamics of the understudied duck species. The goal of the study is to develop reliable survival estimates for adult cinnamon teal and ducklings. So far, the research has included locating nesting sites as well as capturing hens to tag with radio transmitters. Also in progress is webtagging of ducklings, and taking blood samples and morphological measurements in order to decipher more about the genetics of cinnamon teal. This research is being conducted in cooperation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service's Migratory Bird Program and the NWR Complex's Comprehensive Conservation Plan. The project will continue through 2016 and 2017 breeding seasons of cinnamon teal.
