Where Are They Now?

Randi Newton eventually succumbed to the call of the northern wild. But back in 2009 she was enrolled in the Conservation Biology program at the University of Alberta. Her work on water quality and bio-accumulation captured our attention.

That was the year she won the Ian Ross Memorial award for her work. This confidence boost inspired her to pursue an MSc in Urban and Regional Planning at Queens. For a few years she practiced these skills in Calgary.

Now you will find Randi in Whitehorse, managing the conservation program for CPAWS in the Yukon. Her varied career has brought her from field work to planning to advocacy…prompted in part by early ACTWS recognition.

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!
