Rep: dragonwalker is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Research opportunities in New England?


I am a Master's student in Conservation Biology with a particular interest in amphibians. My interests in the past have been captive husbandry and I have 7 years experience as a zoo keeper, working closely with amphibians there. I would very much like my future exploits to be developing care and breeding protocols for rare species, but currently need to find a suitable research project. I have very little field experience and would like this to be an opportunity to become more familiar with this kind of work.

I was wondering whether anyone is aware of research that is needed or is ongoing in the field of herpetology in the New England area. I was doing my degree abroad, so currently am not affiliated with local academic support. I am particularly interested in coming up with research that could eventually support ex-situ efforts. Perhaps with Ambystoma maculatum.

Thank you in advance.
