Epidemiology graduate student Miranda Bertram engages with hunters to address whooping crane conservation issues
Posted January 28, 2013
Miranda Bertram DVM, a PhD student in Dr. Sarah Hamer's lab, is
interested in the pathogens and parasites that are associated with
Whooping Cranes that may play a role in limiting population growth
of this endangered species. To address her questions, Miranda
conducts noninvasive fecal sampling of Whooping Cranes on their
wintering grounds at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge.
Miranda also collects samples from Sandhill Cranes- a common
species in Texas that may be a model for better understanding the
risks to the Whoopers.
