Summary: Many wildlife professionals conduct field work on public or private land. Knowing how and when to engage with private landowners, lease holders, and other stakeholders is important for research success. Building relationships with other land users facilitates the collection of robust scientific data, as well as increasing local support for research projects.

This workshop was facilitated by Sarah Elmeligi, Andrea Morehouse, and Courtney Hughes who come to their work with communities from various perspectives. The workshop was split into three sections: 1) preparing to engage with your community and project planning, 2) implementing your project, and 3) wrapping up and reporting back to your community. Sarah, Andrea, and Courtney covered the details of identifying who to talk to and when, how to reach out, and the social science techniques and methods that can be applied for success. They also discussed lessons learned from their own experience and best practices, as well as various communication and planning tools to keep your community engaged and to build trust and positive relationships.

A recording of the workshop is available in our members area, so don’t worry if you missed it.

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!
