WORKSHOP: Aquatic Invasive Species

2020-03-13 @ 13:00 - 15:00 MDT


Presented by Cindy Sawchuk, AIS Operations/K9 Program Lead, Alberta Environment and Parks

Aquatic Invasive Species are one of the greatest threats to our biodiversity. Alberta estimates that invasive mussels alone could cost the province $75 million annually if introduced into the province. In 2015, the Government of Alberta introduced a team of K9s as an innovative tool for prevention of invasive mussels, and their role has since expanded. This workshop will highlight the work of the Conservation K9 unit, and a four-legged member of the team will be on hand to showcase his skills.

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!

Facilitated by the Wildlife Analytics Lab, Lethbridge College
