The retiring Ohio police officer whose desire to keep his K9 partner sparked a wave of Internet support has a (very) happy ending.
Staff and students from Long Point Waterfowl attended the 7th North American Duck Symposium in early February 2016. This symposium draws together researchers, government, non-government conservation organizations, and industry representatives to address shared priorities for waterfowl and wetland conservation and management. We had 4 oral and 2 poster presentations with LPW affiliations at the symposium. Of which Matt Dyson (Western University) won 2nd place for the best MSc oral presentation and Elyse Iemola (SUNY ESF) won the best undergraduate poster award. With 430 attendees and many of them students, this was a huge accomplishment, the competition was abundant.
Long Point Waterfowl is dedicated to waterfowl- and wetland- research, conservation and training in the Great Lakes region, as well as to the celebration of our outdoor heritage in North America. The primary purpose of Long Point Waterfowl is to study the staging ecology and requirements of waterfowl on the lower Great Lakes.
