The Annual Meeting of the Illinois Chapter of The Wildlife Society (ICTWS) just finished (04/16-04/18). Dr. Tih-Fen Ting was accompanied by first-year M. S. candidate Lewis Hakam and two senior undergraduates Emily Jones and Sarahi Porcayo who all received the ICTWS travel grant in order to attend the meeting. They also presented posters of their work with osprey and kestrels respectively during the poster presentation session.
The meeting provided Ting lab students with networking opportunities and exposure to a variety of different wildlife management issues within the state of Illinois. The conference ended with a presentation on drones and their applications for wildlife research and management. Students even flew drones during a live demonstration. Congratulations to the students on a successful 2023 conference!
