Where Are They Now?

Ian Gazely was already a hard-working field biologist when he won the Robert Goddard Memorial scholarship from the ACTWS in 2005 for his studies at Lethbridge College.

In 2000 he was a volunteer leader on a Roosevelt Elk reintroduction program, and when he successfully completed his program at Lethbridge College, he pursued his BSc while working as a consultant for Traditional Knowledge and Land Use assessments.

Ever a student, Ian is now enrolled in an MSc program at Lethbridge University. He continues to work on elk, and now goats, in British Columbia. The Goddard scholarship was a great motivator, says Ian, however it looks to us as if he needs little motivating. Keep up the great work Ian.

Rooted in Wisdom: Deer Aging Techniques

Embark on a journey of precision and insight with the Lethbridge College Wildlife Analytics Lab (WAL) at the ACTWS Conference in Jasper! Join our workshop, ‘Rooted in Wisdom: Deer Aging Techniques‘, to explore the secrets hidden within wildlife teeth. Explore both the field technique of ‘tooth eruption and wear’ and the laboratory marvel of ‘cementum analysis’ – both dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of ungulate ages. Delve into the heart of these techniques, comparing their accuracy and precision, with a revelation of the superior accuracy of cementum analysis. Learn the art of tooth extraction and witness the seamless process of submitting your own wildlife teeth to the WAL for aging through cementum analysis. Elevate your understanding of deer populations and contribute to the advancement of wildlife knowledge and bolster your resume with applied experience. Participants will gain hands-on familiarity with the field technique of jaw aging, and the lab process of tooth extraction, inspection, preparation, and cementum analysis. Join us in Jasper for a transformative experience at the intersection of field expertise and cutting-edge laboratory analysis!
