The Laramie Foothills Bison Conservation Project focuses on the ecologic and reproductive wellbeing of the bison herd at CSU. Today, we are talking to Dr. Jennifer Barfield and Dr. Kate Wilkins about what it takes to manage, breed, and conserve a bison herd. Tune in as we talk about the importance of bison in their habitat, the benefits of ART, the cultural importance behind this species, and why it takes a village to bring together this project. Enjoy!
Today’s episode is about Dr. Crosier, the director of the cheetah reproductive and research program at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI). Tune in as we talk about her journey into the exotic reproductive field, challenges associated with ART in big cats, other projects happening at SCBI, and of course all things felid reproduction!
