Conservation Currents Blog 2020-05-22T13:54:03+00:00

This blog is for lab members and friends of the Burford Reiskind lab. Our goal is to celebrate current work on the conservation of species across the globe and highlight the cutting edge tools and approaches we are all using to address conservation of species in a challenging time. It’s also a chance to meet the amazing people devoting their lives to conserving biodiversity on our planet, and learn a little more about how they got here.

We are trained evolutionary biologists and ecologists with a fire in our bellies for species preservation and environmental justice.
