Earlier this semester I wrote a personal email to world-renowned evolutionary ecologist Dr. Eric Pianka, and to my great surprise he immediately wrote me back. At a sad, directionless time in my life, I saw Pianka’s PBS NOVA Lizard Kings documentary and it played a huge role in galvanizing me to move back to Texas and study Wildlife Biology. In replying to my email, he said he’d love to come talk to my little society (The Wildlife Society at Texas State University). So, this Friday, I get to meet one of my greatest inspirations and I still really just can’t believe he even wrote me back in the first place!! #evolution #biology #wild #wildlife #science #research #college #school #inspiration #inspire #happy #grateful #excited #smtx #texas #state #txst #nature #outdoors #pbs #nova #lizard #king #omg #tws #wildlifesociety #thewildlifesociety

On the Remembrance Day long weekend, members of the student chapter had the opportunity to volunteer at the Northern Lights Wildlife Society. They helped to rebuild an enclosure for a young lynx, and got to interact with a variety of wild animals you normally couldn't get that close to. 
Keep in mind that all of the profits from our calendar sales go back to this group to help keep them doing what they do best.

Vernal pool plants, soils, and critters already make me smile! What makes me smile even more is learning from an entire collaboration of scientists, biologists and regulatory specialists (both public and private sector) about the successes and setbacks of restoration, mitigation, regulatory permitting, and monitoring of vernal pool projects. The more we share, the more we can learn how best to adapt projects to better protect and enhance our local wetlands and habitats🤗

How to be an inconsiderate wildlife photographer - Lesson 1: do as these folks are doing and create a "WALL OF HUMAN" in a well trodden wildlife road. I encountered this scene this past Friday at #pocosinlakes wildlife refuge and while, yes, it was extremely aggravating on a photographic level to have inconsiderate photographers in the area, it was more deeply concerning to witness the impact on the wildlife. Sometimes one must bear witness in order to create something with a higher purpose. In bearing witness to this high level of stupidity, I was able to take a series of photos that exemplify how not to behave when photographing wildlife, including a very close encounter where these folks acted in egregiously wrong ways. It's going to make for a great article for the state chapter of the wildlife society newsletter that I co-edit. If anyone is interested in a copy of that article, please DM me your email and write "NCTWS article," and when it comes out, I'll email you a copy (FYI it could be a while). #higherpurpose #thewildlifesociety

We had a great time at the #beaverhillbirdobservatory learning about saw whet owls and banding! We were also treated with seeing the northern lights when we left! Thanks BBO!

Today. Was. Awesome. #thewildlifesociety
This is a bit of an introspective post, so read on if you care.... Whenever I travel, I'm always drawn to nature, even when I'm in an urban landscape. But it was always an integral part of my childhood, and led to the profession I'm in today. One of the lasting thoughts I have from the Wildlife Society conference I attended in Albuquerque is the issue of diversity in the wildlife sciences (and really ecology in general) - of both gender and culture. As a caucasian male in the field, I'm one of many, and that's made me question what kind of role I should have moving forward in my career - I'm not one of the visible minorities that are under-represented in my field. I don't think I have an answer yet. But I like the word facilitate. Facilitate connections between young people and mentors who look like them. And also acceptance. Be accepting and welcoming of those who show an interest in the natural world, regardless of their background. Because exclusion- whether intentional or not - only serves to impede progress in our conservation and management goals.

An exciting time here at @devcon_ecology! The Wildlife Society recently covered a publication by my colleagues on the relationship between pesticide and parasite tolerance in wood frogs. Populations vary in their tolerance to all sorts of stressors, and depending on the selective pressures their environment places upon them, they may trade off tolerance to one stressor in favor of defending against another. This is one of the central themes of my dissertation. Best of all, they featured one of my photos in the article! Congrats to my labmate @vwuerthner and colleagues @doctorjonesie and @brian_mattes on the publication!

The gators are captive animals from FWC and are only handled by trained individuals. They are monitored and switched out to keep stress levels low throughout the event. The tape is required by law when they are in public and it is taken off as soon as they are out of public. I will be returning them to FWC on Monday. 
________________________________________________

All of these photos were taken by me besides the one I am in (taken by Brian Barker with my camera) and the tarantula and pill bugs (taken by another wildlifer with my camera,) so please ask if you want to use them.

You might say that we had a bit of success with the owl banding last night. Two Northern Saw-Whet owls, one Boreal Owl, and a sighting of a juvenile Great Horned Owl a little later on. .
