Student’s News

May 2020. Tobey Chase ’20 receives Highest Honors for her thesis: African Elephant (Loxodonta africana) fence breach patterns and habitat utilization: a case study in the Dinokeng Game Reserve, South Africa.  Well done Tobey!

August 2019. Aaron Menghini started his Ph.D. at the School of Forestry Resources, University of Maine. 

May 2019. Anika Berger’19 receives Clark Labs Excellence in GIS Award.

April 2019. Tobey Chase ’20 receives Steinbrecher Fellowship to investigate the role of fences in human-elephant conflict in the Dinokeng Game Reserve in South Africa. The project integrates fieldwork in the reserve (in collaboration with Operation Wallacea scientists) with GIS-based habitat suitability analyses. The project has the potential to contribute to future conservation efforts in the Dinokeng Game Reserve.

April 2019. Carly Robins ’18, ’19 Received 2nd place on the Innovative Applications of Esri GIS Technology Poster Competition. Her work entitled ‘Warming’s Impact on Bird Distributions.‘ was part of her summer internship towards her Master of Science degree in GIS. Congrats Carly
