As part of assessing impacts to the environment, field surveys are integral to help determine how to mitigate adverse effects on wildlife populations. But first the wildlife has to be found, and that's where the surveys come into play. During my presentation, I will discuss what everyday field work is like, what these surveys are used for, and how I ended up working in this field.
After attending Glendale Community College and transferring to California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Zoology 2010), Kevork Babayan began conducting wildlife surveys. He eventually ended up working for the USDA Forest Service Enterprise Program as a Biological Science Technician. This has allowed him to experience landscapes, wildlife, and communities across the Western United States, all while gaining a better understanding of monitoring wildlife and natural resources.
