Thu, 11/14/2019 - 03:29pm - Some call themselves “fish heads.” Some prefer “bird nerds." But no matter the nickname, aquatic and wildlife specialists agreed: A large-scale conference that encompassed all of their interests was an opportunity for new professional development, new connections and a greater appreciation of their own field.
Thu, 11/14/2019 - 12:31pm - Beyond downed power lines and damaged buildings, major storms such as hurricanes uproot the lives of fish and wildlife as well, according to research conducted at the University of Georgia. For example, high winds destroy nesting sites in trees, debris and runoff in waterways cause a drop in oxygen levels, and churning waves on the shore disrupt sea turtle nests. After the storm, felled trees create more food for pests, creating the potential for outbreaks.
