PACIFIC FLYWAY WATERFOWL 

 

My current research is funded by the US Geological Survey and California agencies and involves investigating movement and behavioral ecology of Pacific Flyway Waterfowl from Suisun Marsh. We are examining habitat use and requirements, conservation, management and effects of planned habitat restoration and disturbance.

 

I am deeply passionate about the conservation of nature and counteracting the deleterious impacts of the human population on survival, habitats and ecosystems.

OTHER TAXA RESEARCH/CONSERVATION  

 

I am deeply passionate about the conservation of nature and counteracting the deleterious impacts of the human population on other species, habitats and ecosystems.

 

I have a extensive background in conservation activities and am particularly interested in marine organisms and larger migratory species. My interests have led me to participate in a great deal of research projects, advocacy and public awareness campaigns across the globe.

 

Taxa with which I have worked:

 

Seabirds -~14 species

Other marine taxa including: whalesharks, manta rays, whales, turtles, fish, lobsters, holothurians, corals, cephalopods, plants

 

 

Terrestrial taxa including: mammals, songbirds, reptiles, frogs, plants

 

Ecosystems: marine, reefs, beaches, rivers, creeks, rainforest, cloud forest, savanna, grasslands, desert
