Vice President, Oceans & Islands Division, American Bird Conservancy
Quote: “At MU, all of us in John Faaborg's lab were working at the interface between research and conservation, where the science of ecology was driving our thinking about how to conserve birds, especially birds that migrate between the US and Canada and the Tropics. For many of us, preparation at MU allowed us to choose paths in academia, government, or the private sector where we continue to apply and build on what we learned to conserve birds.”
