Students featured in the Alberta Chapter of the Wildlife Society’s monthly newsletter!

This past month two members of the Bayne lab were featured in The Alberta Wildlifer, the Alberta Chapter of the Wildlife Society’s monthly newsletter. Both Anjolene Hunt and Justine Kummer were featured during the month of February.

Anjolene was given the opportunity to visit Churchill, Manitoba this past summer on the funds she received from the Alberta Chapter of the Wildlife Society to attend to The Wildlife Society’s annual conference in Winnipeg. She recounts what was an unforgettable experience full of polar bears and Arctic adventures.

Having recently completed her Master’s thesis, Justine shares the results of her Birds and Windows project and discusses the factors having the largest affect on bird-window collisions at houses.
