Epidemiology graduate student Miranda Bertram engages with hunters to address whooping crane conservation issues

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.
