Where Are They Now?

If you’ve been following Clayton Lamb’s career since 2014, the year he was awarded the Bill Wishart Scholarship, then you might be forgiven for thinking that he has recently been granted tenure. His award-winning (TWS paper of the year!) work has been published in top journals and has been widely covered in the media. He’s everywhere!

In reality, since being awarded the Chapter’s Post-Graduate scholarship, he has been busy finishing his PhD on carnivore-human coexistence. Significantly, his research has moved the carnivore conservation needle in British Columbia. It is being applied to reduce human-wildlife conflict due to inappropriate roadkill disposal and to locate wildlife overpasses.

With that work all but defended, Clayton has begun his post-doctoral work with the Canadian Mountain Network on indigenous led caribou conservation. If his past is any indication, his future looks very promising.

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!
