Fulbright Scholar Visits UMAG for Teaching and Research

Dr. Josh Donlan, director of Advanced Conservation Strategies, recently teamed up with Dr. Christopher Anderson to teach a novel course in the Universidad de Magallanes, entitled “Pushing the Frontiers of Conservation by Integrating Novel “Social” Dimensions to Research and Decision Making.” Donlan’s visit corresponds to a U.S. Scholar Award given to him to collaborate with the UMAG and Universidad de Chile, in association with the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Chilean agency in charge of managing invasive species. During his two visits in 2011 and 2012, Dr. Donlan will collaborate with researchers and students on teaching and research projects, but also advise the design and implementation of control and eradication efforts for invasive beavers.
