Congratulations to our undergraduate researcher Cora!

Cora is an undergraduate researcher who started working with Franklin’s ground squirrels this spring. We wish to congratulate her as she was awarded a MacEwan University Undergraduate Student Research Initiative (USRI) Project Grant! This grant is very competitive and we are proud that she had a successful application. Cora is currently helping us design an Alberta squirrel ID guide and will be joining us in the field this summer. We look forward to working with her!
