From February 4 – 8, 2019 we attended the 200th Wildlife Society Annual Meeting at Tenaya Lodge just outside Yosemite National Park, in beautiful Fish Camp California. The theme of the meeting was “Death And Taxas: Extinction and Speciation During the Anthropocene.”
It was a really fun and educational experience networking and learning from 600 + wildlife biologists from the western region and beyond. We attended lost of talks and sessions included a pre-conference fire ecology workshop. It was great to learn techniques and concerns from biologist and managers outside of Hawaii. The highlight of the trip was probably the 5+ feet of snow dumped on us the first day of the conference and enjoying the sierras and Yosemite valley in the snow. Very different from Hawaii weather!
