Two of our grad students won presentation awards at the biennial Delaware Estuary Science and Environmental Summit! Well done Janine and Elizabeth!

Elizabeth Bouchard is a first year MS student in Ecology and Evolution working in Dave Bushek’s lab on a project with Daphne Munroe and Brooke Maslo to investigate the interaction of oyster farms with migrating birds seeking to feed on horseshoe crab eggs that accumulate on the shore adjacent to the farms.
